Jewish students are welcome to attend various educational, social, spiritual, and cultural events hosted throughout the year by our Judaic Studies Program and Gettysburg College Hillel.
Hillel is intended to be a home-away-from-home for Jewish students at Gettysburg College. Hillel serves spiritual, cultural, and social needs for Jewish students and also introduces the campus to Jewish life. The group strives to build a close-knit community among Jewish college students while reaching out to the non-Jewish college community.
Contact Director of Hillel Jenny Dorman for more information on Hillel at Gettysburg College.
