Innovative Programming: Harvard Hillel shapes students’ identities and the Jewish future; we must inspire and enable our community to grow, create, and thrive.

Harvard Hillel has wonderful opportunities for you as a student to express your Judaism in whatever way is meaningful to you.

Harvard Hillel constantly enables students in creating new activities — singing ensembles, a Jewish outing club, social action and volunteer programs, interfaith dialogues, a Krav Maga (Israeli martial arts) club, a ‘Challah for Hunger’ charity baking group, and much more — with programs always evolving in college student life.

Harvard Hillel supports Jewish Graduate Student Associations in HMS, HBS, HLS, HKS, HSPH, GSD, HDS, HGSE, HSDM, and GSAS and works with graduate students throughout Harvard to create Jewish programs and to foster Jewish community, connecting Jewish students throughout Harvard’s schools.

Harvard Hillel is important because it allows me to express my Jewish identity and learn with others who come from varying Jewish backgrounds.
