Explore Tufts University Hillel FoundationTufts Hillel is the center for Jewish life on campus. We provide a supportive and nurturing environment for Jewish students to grow religiously, socially, ethically and, in community with other Jews, with respect for other faiths and a broad understanding of what it means to be Jewish. We provide many paths for students to explore, participate, and become leaders. Students can celebrate Shabbat and holidays, socialize at a Bagel Brunch or semi-formal, go to a Shir Appeal concert, study, attend speakers and programs to learn more about our historic connections to Israel, and/or participate in a social justice organization.
