About Hillel at the University of Wisconsin:
With more than 4,000 Jewish students on a large Big-Ten campus, UW Hillel has a vibrant program of engaged and caring students located in the heart of campus.

Our work is intended to welcome and connect people from all walks of life, and seeks to engage them in the expanse of Jewish life on campus and in the world.
