Hillel at Temple University
Hillel at Temple University is comprised of the different Jewish student networks on campus who have varied and diverse interests in Jewish life. On any given day, students belonging to these networks may hold meetings, organize programs or work with staff consultants to plan the direction for the future of Jewish students on campus. Some of the Jewish networks already flourishing on campus include, JOB (Jewish Organization of Business), QJew (GLBTQ), Koach (Conservative Movement), Kesher (Reform Movement), JLife, TSI (Temple Students for Israel), and JIGL (Jews in Greek Life). At Hillel at Temple students are encouraged to author their own unique Jewish identity and embrace their love of Judaism. Staff work diligently with students to encourage them to try new ideas, to reach new student cohorts and to explore all components of Jewish Life at Temple.
