About Hopkins Hillel

Hillel at Johns Hopkins University is a vibrant and pluralistic Jewish community on campus. Enjoy our beautiful facility to study, meet friends, participate in diverse programming, explore Israel and celebrate Shabbat and Jewish Holidays.

PaintingThere are over 600 Jewish students at JHU, about 13% of the undergraduate population. Jewish students are an active, dynamic part of both Hillel and the campus community. The Jewish students, like the entire student body at JHU, are motivated, thoughtful and energetic. There are many opportunities for students to become active in Jewish life through community building, culture and the arts, Israel advocacy, social justice, and religious life.

Johns Hopkins 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.

Johns Hopkins Hillel’s vision is to inspire every Jewish student to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life.

Hopkins Hillel is grateful for the support and leadership of its Governing Board:
