Hillel at Kent State is an important part of the Northeast Ohio region. Hillel is the only Jewish organization in Portage County; the closest other organizations are about 20 minutes away. Thus, Hillel serves more than just the Jewish students. Hillel also is a resource for the entire campus community.
Hillel is committed to providing opportunities for students who want to go deeper into Jewish practices or deepen in their Jewish knowledge. Whether it is learning about a Jewish holiday or tradition, discussing the implications of a particular Jewish law in daily life, or discussing current events from a Jewish perspective, students have the opportunity to engage their peers in discussion about these relevant topics.
Some of the religious life programs include: Friday Night Shabbat Services, High Holiday Services and Activities, Tu b'Shvat Seders, Passover Seders, Jewish Learning with Rabbi Lee Moore and much, much more.
