Hillel provides a welcoming atmosphere to students from all backgrounds and communities. Students come not only from all over Georgia, but from all over the nation and world. Hillel offers a variety of leadership opportunities to bring fresh ideas and new visions to Jewish life at Georgia Tech.
Hillel at GA Tech has five key areas for developing dynamic and vibrant Jewish campus life:
Hillel fosters Jewish student growth by developing a variety of Jewish religious and spiritual communities, celebrating Jewish holidays and Shabbat in a pluralistic and open environment, and exploring our rich traditions and culture through creative activities and memorable experiences; we want our students to grow Jewishly.
Hillel cultivates among Jewish students a passion about Israel and a sense of personal attachment with the country and its people. Hillel provides all students opportunities to learn about Israel and its central role in defining the Jewish experience today and provides a safe space for students to express a wide spectrum of views regarding their relationships with Israel.
Hillel engages and empowers students in meaningful public service and inspires students to address social justice issues creatively. Through a variety of volunteer projects, students are able to explore Jewish values and social justice.
Hillel engages students in meaningful relationships that build strong Jewish communities on campus. We help students relate to the world by nurturing Jewish identity and growth through pluralistic, inclusive, and engaging environments.
Hillel challenges and supports students as they develop as future leaders of the Jewish community and the world. Students develop skills that help them become reflective and critical thinkers, inspire and motivate others, develop and enhance a personal leadership philosophy, and work collaboratively with their communities.
