To enrich the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.
As the focal point for Jewish campus life for more than 2,500 Jewish undergraduate students (ages 18-22) in Pittsburgh, the Hillel JUC sponsors a wide variety of opportunities to engage in Jewish campus life that acknowledge that Jewish students have a diversity of identities and interests. Every Jewish student is welcomed and encouraged to participate in the array of programs, communities and immersive experiences that are supported and facilitated by the Hillel JUC. We are dedicated to creating a pluralistic environment for Jewish college students where they are inspired to grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially. The Hillel JUC helps students find a balance in being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek (social justice), Jewish learning, and to support Israel and global Jewish peoplehood. The Hillel JUC is committed to excellence, innovation, accountability, and results.
