Welcome to the Dickinson College's Hillel Website. It is a great resource to learn about the student-led Jewish life on campus. Hillel is open to students from all denominations of Judaism. Because each student has his or her unique Jewish identity, it allows for students to learn from each other and grow as a community and individuals. We sponsor weekly Shabbat services and dinners, High Holiday celebrations with the surrounding Harrisburg community, Sukkot on the College Farm, Hanukkah and Purim parties, Bagel Brunches, discussions with local Rabbis, and movie nights. By offering a variety of activities we make everyone feel included and welcome. Find us on Facebook, Dickinson College Hillel, to get more information on weekly going-on's at Hillel

Yael Farber, Hillel President

"I am so excited for this year with Dickinson Hillel! Originally from Westchester, NY, I graduated from Irvington High School in Irvington, NY. Throughout high school, I was an active member of NFTY-NAR, or the North American Federation of Temple Youth- New York Area Region and served on the regional board. Over the summer, I was a counselor at URJ Eisner Camp, in western Massachusetts. As a sophomore at Dickinson, I plan to major in Judaic Studies with minors in Religion and Women & Gender Studies. In addition to Hillel, I am an active member of Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity and J Street U Dickinson, and I currently work for the Office of Community Service and Religious Life. I can't wait to see what this year brings for Hillel!"
