Hillel Institute

We look forward to gathering for Hillel Institute 2017 again this summer at Washington University in St Louis. Below are the arrival and departure dates by cohort. Keeping in mind that the gathering begins for many on the same day as Tisha B’Av, we will be providing inclusive, pluralistic, experiential Tisha B’Av programming. For those cohort participants who begin after Tisha B’Av, there will be an opportunity to opt-in to the programming. Cohort leads will be sharing more information in the weeks ahead.

For more information regarding travel to St. Louis, please refer to the Hillel Institute travel reimbursement guidelines PDF and contact the cohort lead listed below with any questions.
