Join our Family Circle Today!

Join our Family Circle! Members are parents and grandparents of current students who give an annual gift of $1,000 or more. Members will receive recognition in our annual report and other perks. Financially independent from the University of Pennsylvania, the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends accounts for almost 98% of our annual budget.

To join the Penn Hillel Family Circle, or for more information, contact Latasha Carrington.

Our Impact

With the support of parents, alumni, and friends, we are able to engage nearly 1700 students each year in meaningful Jewish campus life. By making Jewish life accessible and meaningful, Hillel builds a foundation for Jewish life that extends far beyond campus. Thank you for advancing our impact.

Penn Hillel hosts events on campus for families and alumni on parent and reunion weekends. Our Executive Director, Rabbi Gabe Greenberg, travels frequently to visit with friends of Penn Hillel.
