Hillel UGA is the campus center for Jewish Life at the University of Georgia! We are student-run and staff supported with a student board of 40 students on 5 different committees. We offer weekly gatherings for students, including coffee and bagels in the heart of campus, bubble tea hangouts, Hebrew- learning, and, of course, Shabbats! Shabbats at Hillel boast home-cooked meals, student-led services, and a festive atmosphere. On top of events surrounding Jewish holidays, Hillel UGA hosts many social, Jewish learning, Greek life, Tzedek, and Israel events. We aim to offer something for everyone and meet students where they are!
