Elon Hillel Family Circle: More opportunities to support Jewish students at Elon

Hillel is *the* place of connection for your student, and it is also a community where you can meet other Jewish families and built lifelong friendships.

We would like to invite you to become a member of our Family Circle, and make a gift of at least $1800/year to support Jewish life at Elon. You may not know this, but Hillel relies entirely on the generous donations of families like ours.
