Welcome to Roanoke College Hillel! 

The largest Jewish campus organization in the world, Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life provides opportunities for Jewish as well non-Jewish students to explore and celebrate Judaism and religious life through its global network of over 500 regional centers, campus Foundations, and Hillel student organizations. Hillel's mission is to increase Jewish awareness as well as active communication among other cultures. Hillel actively seeks to engage uninvolved Jewish and non-Jewish students on their own terms: to provide them with opportunities to participate in Jewish activities that are meaningful and appealing to them. Students are empowered to take responsibility for their own identity, whether they wish to participate in a community service project, express themselves artistically, participate in a social event, engage in informal Jewish learning, or attend religious services. Any student may participate in Hillel - no membership is required. Hillel is committed to encourage open religious and cultural dialogs as well as inspire action among its members.
