Hillel Israel seeks to emphasize the relevance of Jewish life to today's Israeli students and young adults, inspiring them to explore their Jewish identity and to feel a sense of belonging to "The Global Jewish People."
Hillel Israel creates encounters with Jews from abroad, exposing Israeli students to Jewish life and tradition outside of Israel.Â This enables the Israeli student to experience, then teach, about living Judaism in a fresh and exciting way.
Founded in September 2003, Hillel at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev has already had a big impact on student campus life, working to bring meaningful initatives to the student population and providing a supportive atmosphere for students to stop by and share their Jewish story. Hillel center at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is located in a central location on campus (Room 244 in the Student Union). Come visit!
