Texas Hillel at The University of Texas at Austin's mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Texas Hillel members are dedicated to creating a pluralistic, welcoming and inclusive environment for Jewish college students, where they are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially. Texas Hillel helps students find a balance in being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek, tikkun olam and Jewish learning, and to support Israel and global Jewish peoplehood.

This Hillel serves: University of Texas, Austin; St. Edward's University; Southwestern University; Concordia University Texas; Austin Community College
