Hillel is the center of Jewish life at Northwestern and the catalyst for Jewish expression of all kinds. Hillel has a rich and storied history here at Northwestern, but our mission remains timeless: we work to inspire Jewish students to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, and we strive to create meaningful experiences that enable our students to explore their Jewish identity while they try to figure out for themselves what it means to be human and what kind of a human being they want to be. All of this while they try to figure out how to enrich the Jewish community at Northwestern, the campus community, and the world beyond.

Jewish Enrichment Center

The Jewish Enrichment Center is a laboratory school that raises a child's voice in Jewish learning. Since 2011, we've run an independent Sunday and afterschool in Hyde Park, Chicago, where children are co-creators of Judaism. The Jewish Enrichment Center is recognized nationally as an exceptional model of deep, personalized Jewish children's learning. At the Jewish Enrichment Center, children ask questions, generate ideas, and bring Jewish texts to life for themselves. Using art and drama and clay, children dialogue with peers and with our ancient tradition, simultaneously growing their Jewish literacy as well as skills for critical and creative thinking and compassionate listening. Our environment teaches children to pursue dignity for all humanity. Now open for infant/toddlers through middle school.
