Weekly Shabbat services include a pluralistic / liberal, musically-based option each Friday night during the school in addition to a daily Orthodox minyan made possible by our amazing JLIC (OU Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus) program. Daily minyan participants often cook breakfast together after services!
UCLA Hillel strives to ensure that all students feel included and welcome. Our building is 100% accessible and includes an all gender bathroom on the ground floor. We have a robust, student-led wellness program which includes access to one-one therapy and numerous wellness programs throughout the year. UCLA Hillel participates in the MitzVote civic engagement program and several of our students have served as Repair the World fellows. We also partner regularly with local soup volunteer and service organizations, and have incubated and scaled national projects including summer camps for underprivileged youth, a network of clinics in Uganda, and Swipe Out Hunger.
The purpose of this award is to support UCLA undergraduate
students to participate in programs and activities that help build understanding
among Jewish and non-Jewish students.
