• Parent's Club

UConn Hillel now serves over 2,000 Jewish students at the University of Connecticut that together create a vibrant, diverse, warm, and welcoming Jewish student community. UConn Hillel is dedicated to engaging Jewish students on campus through a variety of opportunities designed to help them explore and understand Judaism in a personal and meaningful way. We also serve as their home away from home: students study at Hillel 24/7, and we provide snacks, coffee, hot cocoa, parking and a place to send and receive packages.


Hillel's mission is to enrich the lives of all Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish community and the world, and to serve as our student's Jewish home away from home. We achieve our mission by empowering student leaders, engaging students in order to understand what areas of Judaism and Israel they would like to explore, facilitating deep and meaningful conversations and programs that cultivate each individual student's Jewish identity on their own terms, and developing friendships that will last a lifetime.    


We'd like you to know your support also enables Hillel to play a critical role as a leader in Israel advocacy and education, interfaith dialog, combating and responding to Anti-Semitism, and providing resources to key university administrators to ensure Jewish students are able to observe holidays that fall during the academic calendar. Having a well-funded and staffed Hillel is essential on today's college campuses because there is no other Jewish organization that serves the Jewish student community or that is recognized by our universities the way that Hillel is.


There are no membership dues to join Hillel; your child has been a member of the Jewish community from the moment they set foot on our campuses. Whether they're interested in social justice, leadership development, free Israel travel, social activities, observing the holidays throughout the year, or just having a place to study every day and call home, we have something for everyone. Your support of UConn Hillel's Parent's Club enables us to provide essential services and cutting edge programs that engage students and allows us to serve as an advocate for the Jewish student communities we serve. 


100% of UConn Hillel's annual budget relies on private contributions from alumni, parents, foundations, and friends such as you.


Thank you for your consideration! Please know that nothing we will achieve is possible without you!
