OSU Hillel, rooted in Buckeye traditions since 1926, began a reinvention in 1995. Its physical space and methodologies/practices were redesigned. With this innovation, OSU Hillel has impacted hundreds of students every week–they attend programs, eat a meal, workout in the fitness center, hang with friends; they are on campus using Hillel-developed leadership skills or planning get-togethers in their dorms, and they are in the community participating in a job interview or volunteer projects. OSU Hillel serves as an educational, cultural, religious, and social center. Open to everyone, OSU Hillel models the values of inclusion, respect, and tolerance. Our mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish students so they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.

Shabbat shalom from our students!

We know our students are as diverse as the coffee they drink.

Whether you like your coffee black or with pumpkin spice, we believe there are as many ways to do Jewish as how to take your coffee.
