Hillel at Wake Forest University is a student-run organization that provides Jewish programs for students, faculty and staff. The active Jewish community on campus is small but vibrant (~5% of the student population self-identifies as Jewish).
In the Hillel lounge we host events, including free, kosher Shabbat dinners every other week and monthly Sunday bagel brunches. We have a great relationship with Temple Emanuel, the synagogue in Winston-Salem, and have partnered on programs like the Challah for Hunger fundraiser, Purim celebrations and community-service events.
Hillel hosts inclusive services on campus for the High Holidays with our brand-new Torah. Annually, Hillel co-sponsors a Tu B’Shevat tree planting with the Office of Sustainability. Hillel frequently organizes diverse lectures, films, and interfaith dinners.
We welcome all who are interested in connecting with or learning Judaism.
