Kenyon College Hillel serves the Jewish students, faculty, and greater Gambier community by providing religious, cultural, and social opportunities to explore, enhance and celebrate Jewish life.
Jewish students at Kenyon College have the opportunity to take an active role in determining the shape of Jewish life on the campus by serving on the Hillel student programming board. Throughout the academic year, Hillel sponsors speakers and entertainers, has community dinners and organizes parties, film nights, and trips to Columbus. Hillel regularly co-sponsors events with other Kenyon departments and organizations. In short, the goal of Hillel is to maximize opportunities for the Jewish population around the campus to explore Judaism and expand their knowledge of its traditions and culture through a wide variety of programs and events. There are currently over 300 Jewish undergrads on our campus at Kenyon College.
The Rothenberg Hillel house was dedicated on October 24, 2014, and is located at 103 West Brooklyn Street in Gambier, Ohio.
