Though SCU is a Jesuit school, Jewish life is alive on campus. Each week students from Santa Clara come to the Hillel house for Shabbat dinner. At Santa Clara, Hillel hosts;
- an Havdallah ceremony and dinner during Welcome Weekend
- a Passover Seder in partnership with Campus Ministry
There is a strong Jewish presence at the Law School; the JLSA is a very active group and hols on campus events monthly.
