Hillel International believes in the inherent worth and dignity of all people, for as the Jewish tradition teaches us, we are all created b'tzelem Elohim, in the image of God. To that end, Hillel International is committed to pluralistic Jewish life on campus, a diverse workforce and the values of inclusivity. We appreciate all the identities, experiences and backgrounds each person brings. We welcome students, professionals and community members with respect for all abilities, races, ethnicities, socio-economic status, gender identities, sexual orientations, interfaith backgrounds or observances. We are invested in making our gatherings, resources and workplaces accessible for all and will work together with individuals to meet their needs so that they can experience the richness of Jewish life and community.
