Explore CU Boulder Hillel

CU Boulder Hillel is your center for Jewish Life on campus. We are a pluralistic organization that creates spiritual, cultural, and social experiences. Every Friday, Hillel is bursting at the seams for Shabbat dinner where students enjoy good company and homemade meals that are always sourced from local, higher welfare products. Throughout the week, you can find us on campus with an abundance of bagels and coffee just for students. If you like to travel, we do that too through our Birthright Israel trips, Alternative Spring Break trips, and even attending conferences around the U.S. CU Boulder Hillel also offers uniquely tailored internships and leadership opportunities for students who want to make an impact on campus while broadening their resume and portfolio. Make sure to drop by in between classes to grab a snack and say hi!
