Hillel is the Jewish student organization on the Wellesley campus.
Wellesley College Hillel is the dynamic, pluralistic hub for Jewish living and learning on campus. Together, we create and nurture a caring community in which anyone interested in Judaism in all of its many forms can come to connect. Regardless of background or previous Jewish experience or knowledge, all are welcome to bring their voice, their passions, and their questions and to participate fully in our community. We offer a wide variety of cultural, religious, educational, social, and social-action programs on campus, and connect throughout the year to diverse synagogues and other Jewish institutions and organizations in the Greater Boston area. Faculty, staff, and alumnae join with students for programs and holidays, which creates a thriving multi-generational Jewish community on campus.
We have a welcoming Hillel lounge in which all students are welcome to schmooze and to study, as well as a kosher kitchen with a stocked refrigerator and pantry for cooking meat or dairy-based meals and for snacking.
Each Friday, we gather for Shabbat services at 6 pm in the Multifaith Center, and for Shabbat dinner at 7 pm in the Hillel Lounge on the third floor of Billings Hall. On selected Sunday mornings throughout the year we gather for a Bagel Brunch at 10 am in the Hillel Lounge. All are welcome! For a full schedule of our upcoming programs, please see Upcoming Events.
