Jewish Life on Campus
Jewish life on our campus is unique among most Jewish communities around the country. We are proud to be a Pluralistic community in which no (one) affiliation is in charge. Instead, we offer a wide array of Jewish lifestyles that incorporate various modes of Jewish identity: cultural, ethnic, political, religious, social and traditional Jewish identities call Hillel home. Whether you are exploring Judaism for the first time, a seasoned veteran, or just interested in some falafel at Café Nana, Hillel is the right fit.
Our multi-faceted Pluralistic Jewish community is bolstered by the sheer number of Jewish students on the Columbia/Barnard campus. Each stripe, preference and ideology of Judaism thrives on campus and is represented at Hillel. From religious denominations and a full-range of education classes to social justice programming and gala social gatherings, the Kraft Center is the place to be.
