Welcome to Hartford Hillel
The University of Hartford engages students in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to thrive in and contribute to a pluralistic, complex world. For nearly a century, Hillel’s network of dedicated student leaders, professionals, and volunteers have encouraged generations of young adults to celebrate Jewish learning and living, pursue social justice and connect to their peers and the global Jewish people. Linking University of Hartford’s commitment to community and Hillel’s Jewish values, Hartford Hillel welcomes students of all backgrounds and fosters an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel.
University of Hartford Hillel is committed to providing opportunities for students to celebrate, discover, and experience Judaism in a pluralistic and welcoming environment. Hillel offers students an opportunity to learn about themselves and strengthen their Jewish identity. Hillel aims to reach every student at the University of Hartford through a variety of programs and initiatives. We do so by providing a space where students are encouraged to grow intellectually, socially, and spiritually and develop a commitment to Jewish life after graduation.
