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.
