Welcome to Hillel at the
University of Florida

Hillel at the University of Florida is located in Gainesville, Florida. UF houses one of the largest Jewish communities on campus. It is estimated that there are over 6,000 Jewish students on campus. At Hillel, students organize, work, and participate in many Jewish-oriented activities, both on and off campus. We work closely with the Jewish Student Union to ensure a vibrant and welcoming community.


Our mission is to: "maximize the number of Jews, doing Jewish, with other Jews, in a compelling environment." Hillel creates an environment where students can socialize, seek advice and gain a deeper understanding about their own culture.
