Parents are indispensable members of our community! We are excited to work day and night to provide the best possible service to students, and we hope to establish an authentic relationship with parents and family members to ensure we get to know you and your children during their time on campus in Colorado.
Our Parent Circle is one more way you can help your student stay connected to Jewish life through Hillel’s warm, vibrant, and diverse community.
Schedule A Campus Tour
While you are touring our wonderful college campuses, we would love to meet you and show you what each Hillel has to offer!
All students are welcome at Hillel!
Take comfort in knowing that our regular programming (weekly Shabbat Dinners, Birthright Israel trips, holiday celebrations, leadership opportunities, social justice programs, and religious and social events) is free of charge.
On top of all that, our Parent Circle is one more way you can help your student stay connected to Jewish life through Hillel’s warm, vibrant, and diverse community on their campus and while they are away from home.
Enroll now and we will hand deliver to dorm, apartment or house four timely care packages throughout the school year, a birthday delivery for birthdays that fall during class – and of course Matzah Ball soup to ease anything that ails. We will provide that very-appreciated-little-bit-of-home for your college student for a one-time fee of $360. And now, student leaders at each campus will determine how the revenue generated will be spent to enhance student life at Hillel.Learn More

Sponsor A Shabbat
Hillel’s Friday evening Shabbat program is one of our most attended and most important. At the end of a long week we are there to provide opportunities to engage, explore and celebrate Shabbat together as a campus family: from optional student-led services to themed learning, and always 100% free for all gourmet kosher dinner! Shabbat is Judaism’s most important holiday, coming every week worldwide and on campus, and is Hillel’s strongest, most attended student program – offering a sense of community, tradition and an outlet for interactive exploration of Jewish practice across a diverse, vibrant spectrum.
Please consider sponsoring a Shabbat for one of our campuses. Help us provide food, programming and camaraderie for the 50-100 students who attend each week! You can fully fund a DU Hillel or CSU Hillel Shabbat for $900 each, or $1800 puts your family name on a Shabbat at both Hillel Houses!
How it works: Click on TO SPONSOR A SHABBAT and make your donation of $900 for one campus or $1800 for a Shabbat week at both campuses; we will contact you immediately to thank you and discuss details, OR contact any of us and we will help you choose the perfect week, the perfect sponsorship name, or connect you with one of our themes or topics that this right for your family’s sponsored Shabbat.
