Hillel Jewish Students Organization:

We would like to welcome you to the exciting world of Hillel -
the foundation of the campus Jewish community and Jewish Russian Club of Long Island University.

About us …

Hillel is the foundation of the campus Jewish community. From our inception at the University of Illinois in 1923, we have grown into the largest Jewish campus organization in the world with foundations and affiliates in the United States, Canada, Israel, Australia, Europe and South America. The Hillel network brings to the college world all the richness and diversity of Judaism and Jewishness. Its historical commitment to a pluralistic community encourages intellectual challenge and growth. Hillel maintains a presence on over 400 campuses, and is in the vanguard of those who are determined to build a fuller and stronger Jewish people in the 21st century.

Hillel cooperates with a vast array of Jewish organizations to bring to campus the broadest range of exciting opportunities for Jewish involvement, including social, educational, cultural and religious programming.

Hillel: A Place for Everyone.

Jewish students of all backgrounds - secular and religious, former Soviet and Iranian Jews, Ashkenazim, Sephardim, and Jews with no affiliation at all - come to know each other through Hillel: together they create a campus Jewish community that reflects their own interests and needs.
No matter what are their interests, students can find a way to become involved with Hillel.

We know your needs, better than any one else:

We can help you with everything in your student life. No one knows it better than us.
Look at the following situations. They might sound familiar.

You need more money for college because grants and subsidized loans are not enough.
You need a scholarship, but your grades are not so good. What to do ?
Answer is simple - come to Hillel. We will help you. We can give you a scholarship for up to $ 4,000
per year, just because you are Jewish and you need it, no matter what your grades are.
That is not all. This is just a beginning. How about this …

You found a credit card bill in your mailbox. It is too high and payment is due soon. You don't have enough money to pay it. Or, maybe, you want to buy a new car, but no one seems to give you a credit. Don't worry. We can help you with that. All you need to do is to come to us and fill out an application for the interest free loan for up to $ 5,000. You will have two years to repay what you have borrowed without interest or any fees. It is like borrowing money from a good friend.

When it comes to fun, trips and adventures - there is no one equal to us!
