Yes! We have many students that are willing and able to have perspective students stay with them for a day or weekend. Please contact us if you are interesting in a visit!
Hillel does not have a building on campus, however we have an office space in the Leadership and Civic Engagement office which is located in the Student center on 350 Ferst Drive. You can always find us in the Student Center doing programs on a weekly basis! We are always on campus for programs and to hang out with students, so it isn’t too hard to find us!
There are no kosher dining options with university dining, however all meals served by Hillel are kosher.
There are no membership fees. Any student can come to as many or as few events as they would like. Most events are free to all in attendance!
While most programs are free for students, Hillel is able to stay open and alive due to the generosity of our donors. Please consider making a donation to our wonderful organization!
Shabbat at Hillel at Georgia State is a unique and wonderful experience. We have many Shabbat opportunities from students hosting Shabbat in their own homes, going into the local Jewish Community, or joining Emory Hillel for Shabbat. Students get the opportunity to take ownership of their Shabbat experience, which makes it very special.
Hillel observes all major Jewish holidays. From High Holiday services and eating in our sukkah to lighting the hanukiah on Hanukkah and singing the four questions at Passover, Hillel at Georgia State does it all! We are lucky to be so close to the Atlanta Jewish community that provides so many opportunities for our students during the holidays as well.
Hillel leads a trip to Israel for Birthright Israel in December. Our students are able to experience Israel with their fellow Georgia State peers and then come back to campus and share that experience with others. Georgia State also offers opportunities to get involved with through Jackets for Israel, the pro-Israel Student Group.
