Explore The Oregon Hillel Foundation

Oregon Hillel strives to enhance the lives of Jewish students, providing them with opportunities to begin or continue their Jewish journey. Hillel empowers students to incubate and actualize their ideas and interests, expand and diversify their social networks, and access valuable opportunities for professional growth; and is the catalyst for connecting students, building community and inspiring leadership through Jewish values. Students are at the core of everything that Oregon Hillel does, our goal is to invest in areas that students are most passionate in, in order to help create as many student initiatives and expressions of their Jewish identity. Through incubating students' ideas we are able to build their leadership skills, provide professional development opportunities and to broaden their social networks and positively impact the entire University of Oregon Campus community.
