My Stanford experience was anchored by the people, programs and spaces of Hillel. I credit Hillel with giving me the confidence to pursue my life ambitions and help repair the world.


Ideally situated to lead the country as a Jewish innovation accelerator, Hillel empowers Jewish students to develop Jewish initiatives with national scalability, such as our signature Camp Kesem, for children of parents who have cancer, now found on 62 campuses nationwide.

Embracing an evolving peoplehood, we encourage the leaders of the future to confront challenges informed by Jewish values, culture, and history.

Investment in this area will:
  • Coach a cadre of student entrepreneurs to launch new Jewish initiatives through Hillel’s Design Jewish fellowship, to serve as an incubator to scale innovation across Hillels nationally.
  • Support Hillel’s gallery space, which gives students a forum to create and display original works and curate exhibitions, while exploring diverse perspectives on Jewish identity.
  • Motivate graduate student initiatives and outreach to young adults in the community, providing a sense of belonging, connection, and innovation.
Naming opportunities available.
