Who We Are
University of Texas at Dallas Hillel is the home for Jewish life on campus for Richardson students. Hillel is a pluralistic, inclusive organization that supports students as they continue to develop their Jewish identity during this transformative time in their lives. We meet students where they are, encourage their exploration of what it means to be Jewish, and empower them to create their own Jewish paths.
Join Hillel at University of Texas, Dallas!
Hillel Programs & Experiences
UTD Hillel hosts inclusive programming for students wherever Jewish life is happening - in the student union, classrooms, spiritual spaces, on-campus dorms, off-campus apartments, and even outdoors!
Every month students celebrate Shabbat on campus with Shabbat prayers and a delicious Kosher-style dinner - always free of charge. From Rosh Hashanah to Passover, we work with student leaders to create a variety of ways to mark the Jewish holidays, including services, discussions, and meals.
UTD Hillel fosters students' Jewish identity through experiential learning, text study and informal learning with guest educators and our Hillel staff.
Israel & Global Jewish People
Students have the opportunity to travel to Israel and deepen their connection to Judaism and Israel through Birthright Israel. UTD Hillel's Israel on Campus committee also provides the entire campus community ways to learn about and explore Israel without leaving Richardson.
Hillel UT Dallas Student Board
None of these programs would be possible without dedicated student leadership. Learn how you can become a student leader.
Jewish Groups & Community Building
Hillel provides many ways to connect to Jewish experiences on campus, with various programs mentioned above. One important connection we haven't mentioned yet is a group of Jewish friends to share in those experiences and create your own Jewish traditions in your networks. UTD Hillel's engagers are here to help connect students to what they're most passionate about. Grab coffee (or tea, or another drink) with someone from our engagement team to take a break from your hectic week and share your Jewish - and not-necessarily-Jewish - interests with us.
