Student Life

Each student is on an individual journey, and Penn Hillel is there getting to know every student by name and by story.

Penn Hillel aims to connect students to new communities of friends, new approaches to Jewish wisdom and the next set of opportunities for personal and Jewish growth. Penn Hillel also creates countless opportunities to meet Jews from different backgrounds and to explore the breadth and richness of Jewish life.

We welcome Penn students as well as members of the surrounding community to enjoy the amazing cuisine and sense of community at Falk Dining Cafe.

Student Leadership

Penn Hillel is a training ground for future leaders who will be the agents of change for the Jewish community and the larger world.  Leaders are coached to innovate and to take new entrepreneurial risks in order to develop new models of Jewish community and Jewish life.

Student-Led  Programs

Through many unique student groups and numerous internship programs, students create high impact opportunities to deepen their relationship with Israel; to give back and serve those in need locally and internationally; and to explore Judaism through religious, educational and cultural expressions.
