HILLEL

SAN ANTONIO

Hillel’s network of dedicated student leaders, professionals and volunteers have encouraged generations of young adults to celebrate Jewish learning and living, pursue social justice (tikkun olam and tzedek) and connect to their peers and the global Jewish people. By participating in life-changing trips and campus initiatives, students learn to make a meaningful impact on the future of the Jewish people and the world while they grow intellectually, socially, and spiritually.

Our Mission: Enriching the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. 

Our Vision: We envision a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.

Each mentor is paired with approximately 2-4 FYSHies, acting as a small family unit within our larger Hillel community.

JLF adds two critical components to traditional study: 1) It builds a cohort of students within each class who befriend one another and support each other in their entrance into Jewish communal life, and 2) it teaches classical Jewish texts by drawing on the life experience and intuition of college students.
