Hillel is the largest Jewish campus organization in the world, with a global network of over 500 regional centers, campus Foundations, and Hillel student organizations.
Here in Calgary we try to bring together our small, but vibrant community of Jewish students in an effort to increase, as the saying goes, “the number of Jews doing Jewish, with other Jews.” Calgary Hillel is committed to creating a fun, exciting, and valuable campus life for Jewish students attending, University of Calgary, SAIT, Mt. Royal, or any other Jewish young adults between the ages of 18-26.
We are a student run, student led organization. Our members organize a wide variety of programs, ranging from social to social action, and religious and cultural to Israeli oriented programs. There’s something for everyone! We pride ourselves on the warm and intimate atmosphere present at all of our programs.
Hillel’s mission is to maximize the number of Jews doing Jewish activities with other Jews. Hillel actively seeks to engage uninvolved Jewish Students on their own terms: to provide them with opportunities to do Jewish activities that are meaningful and appealing to them. Students are empowered to take responsibility for their Jewish identity, whether they wish to participate in a community service project , express themselves artistically, participate in a social event, engage in formal Jewish learning or attend religious services. Any student may participate in Hillel. Hillel is committed to a pluralistic vision of Judaism that embraces all movements.
