Penn State Hillel
Penn State Hillel’s mission is to enrich the lives of the 6,000 Jewish students at Penn State so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.
Penn State Hillel’s student leaders, staff, and lay leaders are dedicated to creating a pluralistic, welcoming, and inclusive environment for Jewish college students, where they are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially.
Penn State Hillel helps students find a balance between being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek (social justice), tikkun olam (repairing the world), and Jewish learning, and to support Israel and global Jewish peoplehood.
Penn State Hillel is committed to excellence, innovation, accountability, and results.
