Who We Are
West Chester University (WCU) Hillel is dedicated to being a welcoming community that strives to engage or re-engage students in Jewish culture through social, religious, and educational programming. We know in order to be relevant to students, we must put their ideas, experiences, and leadership at the center of everything we do. We encourage students to become leaders in one of our many leadership opportunities and mentor them as they grow on their leadership journeys.
We are committed to supporting each and every Jewish student on campus. We aim to create a vibrant Jewish community that provides opportunities for diverse forms of Jewish expression through an exciting array of activities throughout the school year. Whether it’s a coffee date with one of our Hillel professionals, a Shabbat dinner, an educational program or any of our hundreds of programs throughout the year, we believe that creating meaningful Jewish experiences for college students fosters an enduring connection to Jewish life in our community's future leaders.
West Chester University Hillel is a center for Jewish life on campus. We strive to create an inclusive and safe community that’s supportive to all Jewish students and allies on campus, regardless of their personal or religious backgrounds. WCU Hillel allows students to understand their own Judaism in ways that represent who they are, who they want to be, and enables them to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel.
