Explore Hawaii Hillel

The Jewish community of Honolulu is a small and tightly bound community. As a Hillel, we work to engage students at the university with the rest of the community on the island. While we have a few social events of our own, many of our events are combined with either the local chapter of B`nai Brith or one of the local congregations. While we do not have an on-campus Hillel location or on-campus Shabbat services, there are students active in all of the major Honolulu congregations and rides available to many if not all of their activities and celebrations.

You can follow our events at our Instagram account, @hillelhawaii
