We provide inclusive, innovative, and fun Jewish experiences and programs for college students across San Francisco. With active communities at SF State, USF, UC Hastings, and UCSF, SF Hillel helps students of all backgrounds cultivate connection, make meaning, pursue justice, and meet their basic needs as they author their adult identities and launch careers.
SF Hillel is here to help you make Jewish wisdom relevant to your everyday life, however that looks to you! Our Shabbat dinners give you the opportunity to learn centuries-old grounding rituals while connecting with other Jewish students from across the city.
Our Design Tribe fellows in the Meaning Makers track are passionate about making and marking sacred time, bringing wisdom and relevance into their peers’ lives.
We are here to be your partners in your pursuit of justice and tikun olam, our shared value for repairing the world. Check out these opportunities to volunteer or email us with new opportunities to share!
Below is a compilation of wellness resources, counseling services, COVID-19 specific resources, and campus-specific resources.
