For more than 80 years, Houston Hillel has provided Jewish students with an avenue to express and embrace their Jewish identify and heritage. We operate student centers at both Rice University and the University of Houston. Our primary facility, the Ida and William Zinn Hillel Student Center, was purchased in 1997. This facility acts as both a student center and a community resource. The purpose of Houston Hillel is to encourage and actively sponsor activities that enrich the Jewish identity of Jewish students and faculty at Houston`s university and college campuses.
