Hillel is here as a source of support, inspiration, and activity for all Jewish students to help make their time at college meaningful. There is so much to be excited about the 2013-14 academic year with Hillel and we hope your student will take advantage of more opportunities to get involved with Jewish life on campus.Last year, more than 300 unique students participated in Hillel activities!
Hillel also works proactively with the school administration to ensure religious and pro-Israel tolerance across campus.
We want Hillel to be open to all students so programs are free of charge and Hillel does not collect membership dues.
Hillel depends on parents like you to ensure that Hillel has the resources necessary to promote Jewish life on campus and connect Jewish students with one another, build solid friendships, and get involved in Jewish life.
I hope you will consider donating a gift of $118, $180 or $360.
Homelink is a great way to sponsor creative and festive jewish programming at Georgia Tech! Homelink allows parents to share that special "at home" feeling with their freshman students during their first year at GT through Hillel. Sign up for a one-year HomeLink subscription for $118, and your student will get a personal connection from someone at Hillel, a Free Hillel T-Shirt and hot chicken soup if they get sick - just like at home.

Dear GA Tech Parents,
Thanks for visiting this page. It means you care about partnering with Hillel to insure our vibrant Jewish future - and that you are interested in finding ways you can make a meaningful impact on the lives of hundreds of Jewish students.
Each fall, your student embarks on a significant journey as a college student at GA Tech. After 18 years of living at home with family and friends, the transition to campus can be overwhelming - for you and for your student.
That's why Hillel is here. Hillel at GA Tech connects Jewish students with each other to build lasting Jewish friendships and Jewish memories. Hillel depends on parents to sustain and nourish this integral part of the lives of the more than 600 Jewish undergraduate students at GA Tech, and we invite parents to get involved.
What is your student's involvement in Jewish life worth? For example, the cost of one Shabbat dinner alone is $15 per person, the cost of supporting one Bagel Break is $180, materials for building a Sukkah on campus and holding Sukkot activities costs $360, and bringing a thought-provoking speaker to campus can be $500 or more. What is the value of her experience beyond the actual costs of a program? How many friends did he make through Hillel activities? How many positive Jewish memories were built?
We believe your child’s experience at Hillel is worth a lot.
