students served by Hillel on 850+ campuses

Laptop, backpack, notebook — check. Your not-so-little one is preparing to head off to college. Before they step foot on campus, you can help them find community and a connection to Jewish life, no matter where they’re going to school.

Take just 30 seconds to complete the Welcome Gift form, and we’ll send your student a free gift, connect them with other Jewish students, and introduce them to Hillel staff on their campus. Bonus: they’ll also be entered in a raffle to win one of five $250 gift cards.

Note: Welcome gifts will begin being sent out to students in May 2023. Gifts can only be shipped to students in the U.S. and Canada, but all incoming first-year students are eligible for the gift card raffle. Welcome gifts arrive roughly one month after completion of the form. Gift card raffle winners will be announced in August.
