In response to colleges and universities around the world shutting down on-campus activities, Hillel International, the largest Jewish student organization, is providing high-value virtual Jewish learning and community life to students wherever they are, and helping them explore new ideas and new places during this period of disruption and isolation.
Hillel@Home is a new platform offering online experiences for students, centered around video meetups, courses, prominent speakers and facilitators. Program offerings will be announced as they are finalized and will encompass ritual and spirituality, wellness, learning, community and peoplehood. Initial programs will include conversations with prominent speakers, such as:
- Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
- Obama administration speechwriter and author Sarah Hurwitz
- Comedy Central executive Tara Schuster
- Six-time NBA All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire
- Stars of the Netflix hit Fauda
- And many more!
So if you’re looking for community, connection, and meaningful learning opportunities…or if you’re just bored and need a distraction during Coronavirus cancellations, then you’ve come to the right place. Hillel has virtual meet-ups and online gatherings that bring you together with Jewish and Jew-ish students from around the world in real-time!
