Shabbat & Holidays

Hillel is your religious home throughout the year. From the High Holy Days to Passover seder, we’ve got your back while you’re away from home.

Join Hillel for student-led Shabbat services and a delicious kosher dinner bi-weekly each quarter. Connect with friends and relax at the end of the week. Best part is, the food is FREE.

Jewish Learning

Flex your brain on our eight-week Jewish Learning Fellowship this Winter Semester/Quarter. Gain insights into Jewish traditions, values and texts in conversation with fellow students. We’ll provide the food, and pay you a stipend for successfully completing the course!

Alternative Break

Travel with Hillel of San Diego to the Developing South during Spring Break for a hands-on experience putting into practice Judaism’s vision of justice. For ten weeks leading up to the trip, you’ll dive deep into learning about the Jewish idea of tzedek (justice) and prepare for the opportunity of a lifetime. You’ll head to Central America with fellow Hillel of San Diego students for a week of volunteer work, cultural experiences and learning. You’ll come home transformed.

Birthright Israel

Ten days in Israel, for free! Experience sunrise on Masada, get dirty at an archeological dig, hike a nature preserve, spend the night in a Bedouin tent, meet with Israeli peers, swim in the Mediterranean Sea, go for a jeep ride on the Golan Heights, visit the Western Wall, and float in the Dead Sea!

*This trip is a gift from Birthright Israel. Taglit-Birthright Israel is an innovative partnership between the people of Israel through the Government of Israel, private philanthropists through the Birthright Israel Foundation and Jewish communities around the world (North American Jewish Federations, Keren Hayesod, and the Jewish Agency for Israel).
