Welcome Parents!

Please join Hillel JUC’s Parent Circle

Congratulations on having a university student in your family! We are excited to welcome your student to their Jewish home away from home and support their needs in any way that we can.

Parents and family members play an integral role in the building and sustaining of Jewish life on campus. Hillel JUC’s Parent Circle is a dedicated group which supports the ongoing advancement of Hillel JUC, including Hillel at Pitt and CMU-Hillel. Members share a common interest in strengthening Hillel JUC and enhancing the experience for Jewish students.

Every donation to Hillel JUC makes a difference in the resources we can provide students. Parent Circle donors join our valued community of supporters, knowing they’re the reason we can ensure a Jewish future. Please consider making an annual investment in Hillel JUC’s Parent Circle to ensure that we can continue to provide fun events, education, Shabbat meals, and more, at no cost to students!

You may donate through the link below or from your Donor Advised Fund (Tax ID: 25-6065236). All Parent Circle donors will be recognized as part of Campus Superstar, Hillel JUC’s signature annual event. Thank you for your support!
