Howdy! Founded in 1913 as the Menorah Club at Texas A&M University, Texas A&M Hillel is one of the oldest Hillels in the country. If technically not the oldest, it is definitely the friendliest. Just ask any Aggie! Housed in the beautiful 18,000 foot A. I. and Manet Schepps Hillel Building, Hillel`s Abe and Annie Seibel Center for Jewish Campus Life provides Jewish Aggies with more than just a home away from home. Hillel`s diverse and frequent programs engage students socially, religiously, and educationally and include opportunities to give back to the community and the world-at-large through tikkun olam and tzedakah. Open 24/7 for students to meet, study, play pool, table tennis, basketball, or video games, Hillel is also a hub of activity for A&M`s Jewish fraternities and sorority. Under the leadership of the student board and Executive Director Rabbi Dan Aronson, Hillel also provides internships and leadership opportunities, runs Birthright Israel trips, and hosts Aggie Students Supporting Israel, the campus-wide Israel advocacy organization. With the vision of inspiring Jewish students to `make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel,` Texas A&M Hillel strives to enrich the lives of its students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.
