Explore North Carolina Hillel

North Carolina is a great place to be Jewish! North Carolina Hillel is the foundation for Jewish campus life for colleges and universities across North Carolina, where we serve 8 different campuses. Our mission is to provide students at North Carolina's public universities with opportunities to strengthen their Jewish identities. We do this by creating community; inspiring social justice and intellectual and spiritual growth; and deepening student connections to the Jewish people and the world. At NC Hillel, we believe creating meaningful Jewish experiences for college students, from Purim parties to trips to Israel to leadership development, fosters an enduring connection to Jewish life in our community's future leaders.
