Half Century

Jewish students have created community at Stanford University since the beginning, coming together to socialize, celebrate, and study. But it wasn’t until 1965 that a full-time Hillel director was hired to help cultivate and facilitate Jewish life on the Stanford campus. Marking this milestone, Hillel’s Half-Century year, 2015-16, celebrates the growth, innovation, and future of Jewish life at one of America’s leading universities.


During our year of celebration, Hillel@Stanford is planning a number of events and opportunities to bring the entire Hillel community together. From our Community Torah Project to the Celebration Weekend with special guests and commemorative events, we're excited to share our history over the past 50 years. Stay tuned for more information on Half Century Events and our timeline of Hillel@Stanford through the decades.
