Chapman Hillel

With activities ranging from Jewish education, Israel involvement, and social events, Chapman Hillel gives our students different opportunities to engage with Judaism and Jewish students. We strive to connect with all students on campus and want to understand their needs so we can create the best experience for them.

Healthy Hillel Initiative

Hillel helps students stay healthy throughout the semester with a variety of activities including weekly yoga sessions and other outdoor activities.


High Holidays

Giving back to the community

Hillel students have the opportunity to give back to the community through a variety of events on or near campus as well as an alternative spring break. 


Social Events

Meeting other Jewish students on campus is a huge part of Hillel. We have weekly Chillel with Hillel study breaks and fun social events like escape rooms and challah bakes.


ISrael Involvement

The Orange County Israel fellow hosts a variety of Israel-related discussions at bi-weekly Hebrew and Brew events and other Israel events. Hillel also offers a summer Birthright trip.
