Who We Are

Our Mission: Enriching the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.

Our Vision: We envision a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.

Hillel at Geneseo is committed to providing a pluralistic, egalitarian, and inclusive community for Jewish college students, where they are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially. It is a place where Jewish students can find their home away from home. Hillel helps students find a balance in being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek (social justice), tikkun olam (repairing the world) and Jewish learning; to support Israel and global Jewish peoplehood.

What We Do

  • Weekly student-led Shabbat services, followed by dinner.
  • Opportunity to join area colleges for High Holidays.
  • Traditional, as well as social justice focused Passover seders.
  • Student leadership opportunities.
  • Collaboration with academic departments.
  • Israel political and cultural education programs.
  • Interfaith and intercultural collaborations.
  • Cultural and religious celebrations of major and minor holidays.
