Jewish Life at Gettysburg College

Hillel at Gettysburg College is a home-away-from-home for Jewish students. Hillel serves spiritual, cultural, and social needs for Jewish students and also introduces the campus to Jewish life. The group strives to build a close-knit community among Jewish college students while reaching out to the non-Jewish college community.
