Explore UC Berkeley Hillel

Berkeley Hillel is proud to be celebrating nearly a century as the Jewish student center for the UC Berkeley campus. Berkeley Hillel, in its newly renovated building serves as a Jewish student center offering a place for Jewish students to gather, learn, eat and hang out. Hillel is a place for students to put down their heavy bags after a long day and filter through the refrigerator. It is a place where students connect with their Jewish peers through social action projects in the community, Jewish learning, Israel advocacy, or hanging out.
