IS HILLEL REFORM, CONSERVATIVE, ORTHODOX, OR SOMETHING ELSE?
Hillel is not affiliated with any particular denomination. Our staff, students, and community members all belong to different denominations of Judaism. Hillel San Antonio is a supportive Jewish community where many people feel free to visit synagogues, services, and programs from different types of Judaism. Basically, you’re free to practice your Judaism the way you want, as long as you’re supportive of others who want to practice Judaism their way. Also, if you’re not sure what all this denomination stuff means, stop by our office or email us at any time!
I’M INTERESTED IN GOING TO ISRAEL. CAN HILLEL HELP ME GET THERE?
Yes. Our Hillel takes students to Israel on Taglit-Birthright. If you are a Jewish person between the ages of 18-32, you may be eligible for the free trip. There are additional opportunities for travel or study in Israel beyond Birthright. Contact us to learn more!
