Explore Bryant University Hillel

Bryant University Hillel is a small but growing and vibrant group of Jewish students from varied backgrounds. We hold most of our functions in the beautiful Ronald K. And Kati C. Machtley Interfaith Center. Bryant Hillel holds pluralistic open and participatory Friday night services every other week, usually accompanied by dinner made by the Hillel students in the kitchen of the interfaith center. The student leadership is not a rigidly structured board, but a group of committed students who welcome all to participate and share their ideas. Hillel erects a sukkah each fall, has a service and dinner for the high holidays, and hosts an annual Passover seder, and holds programs for social and educational purposes throughout the year.
