Explore James Madison University Hillel

Through social, religious, and educational programming, community outreach, and student engagement, we work to actively engage JMU's Jewish students, faculty, and community members. We also work with a plethora of campus and administration organizations to co-sponsor many on campus activities. Basically, we exist to help Jews chill with Jews on and around JMU's campus. We have tons of events throughout the semester in Hillel. These events are generally social, religious, or educational in nature. Instagram: @jmuhillel
