Dor L'dor

Transmitting Judaism from generation to generation

From Rabbi Sue

We are your partners in helping to take care of your student while they are away from home. We are committed to providing a warm, welcoming, caring Jewish community at IU.

Hillel is always here for you and your child. 

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 religious observance policy, creating an environment free of penalty from academic obstacles to religious practice.

The programs and services that Hillel provides are very costly. It is only through the generosity of parents, grandparents, and alumni that we are able to offer so much to our students. Please join our Parents & Grandparents Club, Dor L‘Dor - Generation to Generation today! 

Hillel greatly appreciates gifts of every size.

see what our different donor levels offer:

The following packages are available with your investment in Hillel’s future:

  • Birthday Package – On your child’s birthday, Hillel will deliver a personalized, homemade birthday cake, birthday card, and balloons directly to their door.

If your child's 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 a date of your choice. All care packages come personalized with a special message from you.  

  • Chanukah Package — As we light the candles, we'll also be delivering Chanukah gift bags full of candy and treats!

  • Purim Package — Help your child celebrate this joyous festival with a goody-filled package of tasty treats, and purim masks!

  • Passover Package – Give your child a present of wonderful, Kosher-for-Passover delights! Kosher-for-Passover treats can be hard to find in Bloomington, but not at Hillel!

  • Finals Week Care Packages – At the beginning of finals week each semester, your child will receive a “Finals Week Care Package” of mouth-watering goodies to help them get through this understandably stressful time.
