Fall Semester 2012
It has been great to see so many of your children at Hillel already. Hillel is the center for Jewish life on campus and provides a "Jewish home away from home" for your child and over 4000 Jewish students. The Jewish student population has tripled over the past ten years.
In addition to weekly Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Shabbat services followed by a FREE home cooked Shabbat dinner, we offer several programs every day such as BBQs, tailgating before home football games, and many social programs. We have numerous clubs available for students to join such as Hooshir (a cappella group), Business Leadership Initiative (a club for business students to meet and network with business leaders), Hoosiers for Israel, Intramural Sports and much more. In addition, we offer P180 classes so students can get an hour of IU credit for getting involved at Hillel, and internships such as website design, journalism and graphic design 1, 2 or 3 IU credits.
We deliver FREE Matzah Ball soup to sick students through the Mordoh Matzah Ball Soup Hotline. Please call Hillel anytime your child needs a soup delivery. And we provide high holy day services and meals and Passover seders on campus for your child.

At Hillel, we strive to constantly develop new and exciting ways to better serve our students and to offer strong leadership opportunities to prepare them to become the leaders of tomorrow’s Jewish community.
Every Jewish student at IU benefits from Hillel’s work to create a campus that is supportive of Jewish students and the Jewish community. We have worked diligently with Indiana University on diversity training, and have successfully helped to create IU’s policy allowing students to be excused from classes, without penalty, for religious observances.
We need your support and partnership in order to be able to continue to provide a thriving, creative, welcoming Jewish community on campus.
In order to continue to provide your child with free meals, holiday services and countless programs, advocate for your child on campus, and help to create a welcoming supportive environment at IU for Jewish students, we need your financial support. Please join our Parents Club, Club Dor L‘Dor (Generation to Generation) today.
Your investment in Jewish student life is critical to our continuing success! We truly need your support more than ever to serve the growing Jewish student community at IU.

The following packages are available for your child as described below:
- Birthday Package – On your child’s birthday, Hillel will deliver a delicious homemade, personalized birthday cake (your choice of flavor and icing!), birthday card and balloons, directly to his/her campus address. If his/her birthday has already passed, or your child’s birthday is during a time when classes are not in session, we can deliver the cake on the date of your choice. All care packages come personalized with a special message from you. It’s an easy and convenient way to let your child know that s/he is never far from your thoughts!
- Hanukkah Package – Help your child celebrate this joyous festival with a goody-filled package of tasty treats!
