Hillel (The Jewish Student Organization)
Hillel is the largest Jewish student organization in the world. It was started over 90 years ago and is now on more than 550 college campuses. Its mission is to inspire students to forge their own Jewish paths during these formative college years. The national website at hillel.org
The Rosenblatt Family Hillel
The Rosenblatt Family Hillel at Wake Forest University is a student-run organization that provides Jewish programs for students, faculty and staff. Our 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 (dairy/ parve) kosher Shabbat dinners every other week and monthly Sunday 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.
The Rosenblatt Family Hillel hosts inclusive services on campus for the High Holidays. Rosenblatt Family Hillel frequently organizes diverse lectures, films, and interfaith dinners, and annually co-sponsors a Tu B’Shevat tree planting with the Office of Sustainability.
