Explore Hillel at Dartmouth

Hillel at Dartmouth is the hub of Jewish life on campus. Our student leaders bring their passions, interests, and talents to bear as we create meaningful and engaging experiences for the entire student community. Rabbi Seth Linfield is the Executive Director. Together our student and professional leadership creates a powerful partnership for the benefit of Dartmouth students. Hillel at Dartmouth is housed at the Roth Center for Jewish Life. In addition to Hillel at Dartmouth, the Roth Center also houses the Upper Valley Jewish Community. This affords our students the rare college experience of combining personal exploration with the opportunity to stay in touch with a Jewish community that spans the generations. In fact, many Hillel leaders take advantage of teaching opportunities in its religious school, serving as bnai mitzvah mentors, and leading its youth group.

Religious Services

On Friday night, we have student-led Kabbalat Shabbat services. The style and form change based on student leaders and desires. It is always egalitarian and there is a full Maariv (evening service). There is also a home cooked Hillel dinner every week after Kabbalat Shabbat Services. The local synagogue uses the Roth Center for Jewish Life for Shabbat morning services which are at 10 am every Saturday morning. Students are welcome and encouraged to attend.
