Explore Queens College HillelQC Hillel is home to 4,000 Jewish students - the 8th largest Jewish campus populations in the nation. Our community is made up of Jewish students whose families come from all over the world: Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Eastern Europe, Central Europe, Uzbekistan, Russia, Georgia and Israel, to name a few. We work with many Jewish clubs and organizations on campus like Hillel Club, OU-JLIC, the Israel Student Association, Bukharian Cultural Club, Persian Club, Mishelanu, and our award winning a cappella group, Tizmoret. We also host weekly cohort-based experiences like the Jewish Learning Fellowship and Mizrahi LEAD (Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Development). We celebrate many Jewish holidays and Shabbat on campus, and empower students to build vibrant communities that help them explore what being Jewish means to them.
