Parents

Hillel at Drexel connects Jewish students with each other to build lasting Jewish friendships and helps students connect to Judaism in ways that are relevant and meaningful to them as they navigate their lives at Drexel and beyond. This website offers a glimpse into Jewish life on campus, and will regularly be updated with opportunities for families to experience the magic of Drexel Hillel.  The best way to learn about Jewish life at Drexel is making Drexel Hillel a part of your next visit to campus.  Please feel free to call our Hillel office at 215-895-2531 to set up a visit, or be in touch at idekoninck@drexelhillel.org.

Opportunities for Parent Support

Hillel depends on parents to sustain and nourish this integral part of the lives of the more than 900 Jewish undergraduate students at Drexel, and we encourage parents to get involved with Hillel by providing financial support for our programs, providing leadership for our parent and family activities, and helping Drexel Hillel to connect with Jewish high school students in your area who might be considering Drexel University.

What is your student’s involvement in Jewish life worth?

What is the value of her experience beyond the actual costs of a program? How many friends did he make through Hillel activities? How many positive Jewish memories were built?

Nearly 70% of Drexel Hillel’s budget comes from the generous support of our parents and alumni.  Your financial support of Hillel allows Jewish life at Drexel University to continue to grow and thrive.

These are just some of the ways your dollars make an impact:

  • $5,000 Funds one Beyond Birthright Israel Intern for one year
  • $2,500 Supports students across camps to celebrate the Passover holiday together
  • $1,000 Develops Leadership Retreats and Initiatives
  • $500 Sustains our Torah on Tap program for one term
  • $360 Provides Shabbat dinners for one student for one year
