Explore Bucknell Hillel

Welcome to Jewish Life and Hillel at Bucknell! We are a warm, laid-back and active community dedicated to fostering rich Jewish life on campus and showing up as part of the larger campus community. We are pluralistic, welcoming and always open to new ideas and partners. The Berelson Center is the hub of Jewish life on campus. Join us for Shabbat dinner or eat in our sukkah, play board games or watch a movie, or get some quiet study time in our library. Cook in our kosher kitchen, chat with the rabbi and hang out in the backyard when the weather is nice.
