Explore College of Charleston Hillel

The College of Charleston Hillel is the hub for Jewish Student Life on campus! We sponsor bi-weekly meals, Shabbat services, and a variety of special events. Jewish Life at CofC is much more than just meals and programs - there is an active Challah for Hunger chapter, a Holocaust Education Awareness and Remembrance (HEAR) group, student-led weekly Jewish learning (Havurah), and both a Jewish Fraternity (Zeta Beta Tau) and Sorority (Sigma Delta Tau) on campus. Hillel is a student run organization, staff-supported organization that offers a variety of Jewish themed programming for the entire student body as well as a chance for Jewish students to connect with each other in a laid back, supportive environment.
