Thousands of dedicated supporters from across the globe have nurtured and sustained the Hillel movement for 100 years.
More than 140,000 students participate in Jewish life and learning at Hillel each year – and they never have to worry about paying membership fees or dues. That’s because of the generosity of our supporters from across the Jewish community who believe that the future of Jewish life is on our college campuses today.
Hillel supporters and volunteer leaders do much more than make Jewish college life possible —they also work hand-in-hand with Hillel staff and student leaders at 850 colleges and universities around the world to build thriving, vibrant Jewish campus communities.
Meredith Burak, a former member of Hillel International’s Board of Director and a long time supporter of the Burak University of Vermont Hillel, sat down with Hillel International to speak about her experience with Hillel and what makes her passionate about the work that Hillel does.
