Hillels of Illinois - Federation supports a vast array of Jewish activities for students at colleges, universities and professional schools in Illinois. The Hillel program provides opportunities for Jewish students to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity at 16 different college campuses in Illinois, as well as through Hillel Regional programs. Hillel's vision is a world where every Jewish student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel. Hillel seeks to enrich the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Hillel seeks to create a pluralistic, welcoming and inclusive environment for Jewish college students: an environment where students are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially. Increasingly, Hillel must help Jewish students counter campaigns by the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement to delegitimize and demonize Israel, and to address the concomitant increase in campus anti-Semitism.
