• When I was in school, Hillel helped me feel at home for the Jewish holidays. I also participated in a Hillel fundraiser making phone calls. It helped bridge my Jewish identity from living at home to starting my own independent life. Brett F. - Franklin, MI

Michigan Hillel is constantly expanding – supporting 6,500 Jewish students through over 40 student-led groups. Staff is always meeting with students to engage them in the community, empower them as leaders and talk about what they want to experience on campus.  We do our best to help fulfill their wishes through dozens of diverse Hillel programs and groups. We are also prepared to assist students with just about any problem he or she may have at the University.
