Hillels of Westchesterï¿½ is the hub of Jewish life here at Purchase College. With committed students and dedicated staff, Hillel has grown from a handful of participants to a vibrant and growing presence on campus served by two full-time professionals and an activive volunteer Board. At Hillel, we strive to enhance the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. All members of the Purchase community are welcome to participate in this holy work. Hillel offers opportunities to take part in Jewish education, Israel programs, tzedek (social justice) efforts, and Jewish prayer and festival celebrations. Each semester, we welcome a variety of Jewish bands, speakers, and cultural performers. Hillel has come to be known campus-wide forï¿½ our collaborativeï¿½ programming, including our regular Midnight Run event, where we bring food and clothing to the homeless poor of New York City, and our monthly kosher Shabbat dinners. In 2006, Hillel at Purchase was proud to dedicate it`s new lounge space, located in Campus Center North (Room 0024), where we were joined by Hillel student leaders and staff at Purchase College, including President Schwartz. We now hold weekly meetings in that space, and regular Shabbat evening services.
