Jewish Experience

Whether you are Jewish, Jew-ish, Jewish-leaning, Jewish-learning or Jewish-exploring - welcome! Most of the 500+ Jewish undergraduates at DU come from liberal Jewish backgrounds, so whether you grew up in the Reform, Renewal, Conservative, Reconstructionist, Humanist or secular Jewish movements - or in no movement at all - DU Hillel is the place for you. For students who lean Modern Orthodox - and for any student who is exploring - our campus Chabad is a wonderful partner for Hillel with whom we partner and collaborate often.
