Shalom! Welcome to Hillel @ Loyola!
Hillel at Loyola University Chicago extends a warm welcome to you! Hillel is the organization of Jewish students and faculty at Loyola and one of the university's most active student groups. We provide the opportunity for Jewish students to meet each other, meet and exchange ideas with Jewish faculty, and be active participants of the Loyola community.
We do this through a wide variety of programs on campus and off - such as holiday celebrations, guest speakers, discussions, classes, parties, faculty/student luncheons, participation in university-wide activities and more. The Hillel students and our Director are also very familiar with our campus, including courses and professors, and can be of real assistance in many informal ways in enhancing student life.
Hillel at Loyola is also a part of The Hillels of Illinois network of cross-campus programs that involve Jewish students from throughout the Chicagoland area, the state as well as the Midwest. And, in conjunction with International Hillel, we send students to Israel for free, to the former Soviet Union, Europe, South America, etc. on special service trips, and to national student conferences throughout the United States.
We invite you to be a part of all this. By joining our Hillel listserve, you will learn about our many programs. Email Hillel Director Patti Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the listserve. Also, please stop by Hillel and introduce yourself to her and the other members of Hillel!
