Hillel at CU Boulder
"We inspire every Jewish student to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel—thereby making the world a better place. We build a Jewish community whose values enrich the lives of students during their college years and beyond. We feel that interfaith activities are very important for our community in light of the current fractious political climate that includes rising anti-semitism, anti-Muslim sentiment, hate crimes and divisive rhetoric. We must all be allies for each other, and we hope to reinforce that by fostering an interfaith/multi-denominational community on our campus and beyond."
Hillel is committed to:
Nurturing a student-led, staff-supported culture committed to excellence, innovation and accountability;
Creating a welcoming, pluralistic and inclusive environment for Jewish students and their guests;
Guiding students to live by the Jewish prophetic values of social justice (tzedek and tikkun olam);
Embracing Jewish learning and support for Israel and Jewish Peoplehood; and
Supporting students to anchor their lives in their deepest values to become tomorrow’s Jewish leaders.
The Jewish holiday of Passover, which celebrates the exodus of the Hebrew people who were enslaved in Egypt, is coming up in a few weeks. Hillel is partnering with Jewish Family Services in Boulder to run a community food drive, as is done every year for this holiday. They are collecting food now until the holiday finishes (Tuesday, April 18) and appreciate any and all contributions. For more information, contact Hillel at the information listed below.
