The Hillel of Boston College helps to serve the social, cultural and religious needs of Jewish students and to enrich campus culture for all. Part of the Hillel Council of New England family, we welcome members of the Boston College community from all backgrounds to our events and our community. Boston College began in 1863 as a small Jesuit college for young men. It is now an internationally renowned university with a culturally, religiously and ethnically diverse coeducational student body. The BC faculty is similarly diverse, with committed individuals from each department and from the surrounding Jewish communities in Newton and Brookline. Best known for our popular (and free) weekly Friday night Shabbat dinners, BC Hillel also hosts high holiday services, student-faculty get togethers ("shmoozes"), Hanukkah parties, Passover seders (chocolate and traditional), speakers, and more!
