Jewish Life at Elon University supports students’ journeys, no matter the destination

Why is Elon Hillel special? Because our students know that even when they are far from their own houses, they have a home at the Sklut Hillel Center.

We are so excited to welcome you to campus this fall!  We have adapted our fun, meaningful and engaging programs to virtual and/or socially-distanced models, and our online community continues to thrive (STUDENTS ONLY: if you haven’t already, please join us at our very own Hillel Facebook group, LIFE GOES ON, where you can share recipes, movie recommendations, and just chat about your life).

As always, our Elon Hillel is a judgment-free zone where it doesn’t matter how you are Jewish or how Jewish you are, and where there are no dues or requirements.

Hillel at Elon is dynamic, student-run, and student-centered. We are open to all Jewish students from all backgrounds.

Our students are leaders, organizers, and educators. They are empowered to make Jewish connections, take initiative, and find their own place within a diverse, vibrant, and welcoming community of their peers.

We come together for meals, to learn more about being Jewish, to celebrate holidays, get engaged in social justice work, do homework, or just to grab a snack from the well-stocked fridge and hang out with friends or the Hillel staff.

STUDENTS: You MUST fill out the Religious Observance Form in advance if you are planning to miss class for any of the Jewish High Holidays. We strongly recommend that ALL Jewish students fill out the form, even if you are not sure you will be at the services or meals. CLICK HERE for the form, and please reach out to us with any questions you have about High Holidays.

All students are welcome and encouraged to participate in our diverse range of programs, as together we celebrate our own traditions and learn about others.
