Also known as the Yudowitz Center for Jewish Campus Life, Hillel's mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Cornell Hillel aims to inspire every Jewish student to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel. Cornell Hillel embraces this mission by seeking to provide meaningful Jewish experiences that are relevant to the lives of students. As the main gateway for the approximately 3,500 Jewish Cornellians, both undergraduate and graduate, Cornell Hillel continuously strives to create a broadly defined Jewish campus culture, which is intrinsically intertwined with the culture of Cornell University. We offer a myriad of programming including social and cultural events, as well as religious programs.
At Cornell Hillel, we seek to empower Jewish students to build vibrant and engaging communities that cultivate ownership of identity, a sense of the dynamic role of Judaism, and an appreciation of the rich diversity of the Jewish experience. All of our upcoming events and programs can be found on our website and Facebook page.
IAUJC funding is regularly used by Hillel to support freshman welcoming activities.
