Explore Bradley University Hillel

Since 1947, Bradley Hillel has been the center for Jewish life on campus at Bradley University. And we are in the midst of a Jewish renaissance on campus, spurred by the opening of our new Hillel House, and the arrival of a full kosher meal service on campus. Our most popular regular programs are Friday night services and dinner, and our weekly Sunday Lox-and-Bagel Brunch. Students share all the tasks of preparing and serving meals, and students lead services in collaboration with Rabbi Daniel Bogard. Hillel holds Reform and occasional Conservative services every Friday evening during the school year, and once-a-month Saturday morning services together with members of Peoria Reform Congregation Anshai Emeth. Students are also welcome at local congregations for services, holiday observances, and other programs. Hillel hosts a variety of religious, social and educational events throughout the school year.
