$10,000 Goal

At Hillel of San Diego, we build community for over 2,500 Jewish students who go to college in San Diego at SDSU, UC San Diego, CSU San Marcos, and University of San Diego.

Our talented professional staff serve as mentors and educators to provide students with valuable tools and opportunities to be Jewish leaders. Our diverse programming brings together students of all backgrounds to form deep, personal connections to Jewish life — here and in Israel. We are deeply committed to inclusion and pluralistic Judaism.

Since 1992, we have been operating as an independent religious corporation in California. Today, a pillar of the San Diego Jewish community, we are the only Jewish organization with the capacity to engage the majority of university-age Jews in San Diego.

This year for San Diego Gives, we ask our community to donate Funds-for-Food! 

It starts with food - a hearty, home-cooked meal on Shabbat, barbeque for social gatherings, and sandwiches and snacks for when students need a little pick-me-up before a class.

Your support will create that Jewish home away from home through Hillel of San Diego!

$100 welcomes 10 new students to Hillel with a bag of Hillel swag and information about programs that will enhance their campus experience. 

$180 feeds 10 hungry students at one Shabbat dinner

$360 provides pizza and salad at one social activity night for 50 students

$500 covers a full month of coffee and bagel meetups for 100 students

$1,000 celebrates a Jewish holiday with delicious, traditional foods for 150 students

$1,800 sponsors one Shabbat dinner for 100 students, creating new traditions and helping students make connections to each other and to the community
