The Oregon Hillel Foundation serves the 2,500 Jewish students at the University of Oregon and Oregon State University helping us meet our mission of being the catalyst for connecting students, building community and inspiring leadership through Jewish values; all while staying true to our core values of creating a pluralistic, caring and welcoming community that maintains a deep commitment to social justice.
We are proud to provide a warm & welcoming environment for students of all different religious and Jewishly observant backgrounds in our community, every student, no matter their practice or faith is welcome in our doors. There is no membership or membership dues, every student is part of the community from the moment they set foot on campus. 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.
Your support of Oregon Hillel’s Parents’ Club enables us to provide essential programs that engage students and allows us to serve as an advocate for the Jewish student communities we serve. We invite you to call on us anytime we can be of help to you or your student: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
100% of Oregon Hillel’s annual budget relies on private contributions from parents, alumni, foundations, and friends.
Thank you for your consideration! Please know none of this would be possible without you!
