Explore Union College Hillel

Union College Hillel has received the designation of a small & mighty campus of excellence from Hillel International. We currently have a lively Board which meets once a week and all are welcome to attend. As the programming is student driven, what happens on campus reflects student interest. Our kosher Shabbat dinners are cooked in a cooperative and social fashion on Friday afternoons. We feel that we have the best Friday night dinners in the country! Hillel also provides Kosher holiday meals for the High Holidays and kashers the kitchen for Passover to provide a kosher for Passover Seder . We were recognized by the Community Outreach Center in the spring of 2016 for our volunteer contributions to the community.
