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! Whether you are looking for a homey spot to grab a snack, a comfy place to study, a way to meet other students, or to celebrate Shabbat and other Jewish holidays, you are always welcome at the Sklut Hillel Center. (STUDENTS ONLY: if you haven’t already, please join us at our very own Hillel Facebook group, Elon Hillel Mishpacha, 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.

High Holidays come early this year, so check out our offerings for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur HERE

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please take a moment to fill out the Religious Observance Notification Form, which will excuse you from class for the High Holidays – we recommend all Jewish students fill out this form even if you are not sure you will attend services, so that you have the freedom to make whatever decisions are right for you. You can find the form HERE.

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.
