The Oregon Hillel Foundation now serves over 2,000 Jewish students at the University of Oregon and Oregon State University that together create a vibrant, diverse, warm, and welcoming Jewish student community.
We are proud to include students of all different religious and observant backgrounds in our community, every student, no matter their practice or faith is welcome in our doors. Whether they’re interested in social justice, leadership development, free Israel travel, social activities, or joining hundreds of other students throughout the High Holy Days, we have something for everyone.
Hillel strives to empower students to create the Jewish community that they wish to be a part of at the UO and OSU. Thanks to the support of alumni, parents, and friends, we are walking into the 19/20 academic year with:

  • Our first full-time staff member at Oregon State prepared to mentor students and create intentional spaces for Jewish learning and programming.
  • Our Rabbi at UO who will work as both a Hillel staff member, leading Jewish learning and tefillah/services on Shabbat and the High Holy Days, as well as teaching for-credit classes at the UO in the Jewish studies department.
  • A full-time staff at the UO dedicated to running successful Israel education and culture programming in addition to free Israel trips for students at both UO and OSU.
With so many changes to our staff, we are excited about building community at UO and OSU for all students create a community that they enjoy and are proud lead and be a part of.
“Hillel has warmly welcomed my son Max into the Oregon Jewish community - shabbat services, holiday celebrations, and the annual Ski Retreat are just some of the activities he participates and finds value in. As a parent, especially from out-of-state, I couldn't be happier that he has found his home away from home.”
– Tali Mackay, parent class of 2021
