Hillel of Silicon Valley is a Multi-campus Hillel that actively supports Jewish student groups at five local campuses plus welcomes any college age students in Silicon Valley no matter which school they attendï¿½or even if they are not currently attending school. Additionally, Hillel staff is sought out by faculty at schools without a Hillel or Jewish student group to provide support when needed on campus. We work with a largely commuter, working student population. This means that Hillel provides a normative college experience for students who are not in situations where it is easy to connect with a college community. Hillel is the first contact with the organized Jewish community for the majority of students ï¿½ students who would most likely be lost to the Jewish people if no one was actively working to connect them. Hillel is the only Jewish and pro-Israel organization on all five principal campuses. Hillel provides the only counter balance to anti-Israel bias and activity on campus. Hillel is a safety net for students who donï¿½t have money for food, need extra support for school or personal issues and need a friendly, loving adult to turn to.
