Hillel at The George Washington University

Hillel at the George Washington University proudly serves more than 3,000 Jewish undergraduates and 1,500 Jewish graduate students of GW. GW Hillel was created in the 1930’s and moved to its current location, the Gewirz Center (23rd & H) in 1986. GW Hillel is one of the most active and rapidly growing Jewish campus communities in North America, offering a wide array of opportunities for Jewish students of all backgrounds and interests to plug in to Jewish life at GW. If you would like to start a student group or have an idea for a program, let any of our staff or student leadership know and we’ll make it happen together! Our Mission The mission of GW Hillel is to provide an open, warm, and pluralistic environment in which students can shape their college experience by connecting socially, culturally, and spiritually to their Judaism. Hillel aims to foster students’ personal development and creativity by facilitating work in cultural events, spiritual practices, and educational opportunities. Through self-reflection and expression, students at Hillel can find connection and identity with their Jewishness, taking part in the colorful, unfolding narrative of the Jewish people. Ultimately, the goal of GW Hillel is to prepare students for their entry into the wider world with a strong, deeply rooted Jewish identity. Through social justice work, interfaith dialogue, and civic engagement, Hillel promotes the core values of hesed, tzedakah, and tikkun olam, strengthening the bonds of loving kindness and social responsibility as the foundation for a fully Jewish life.
