Welcome to Kenyon Hillel!

Hillel is a catalyst for Jewish life on Kenyon College’s campus. Hillel is different things for different people. Kenyon’s Jewish community is made up of diverse students and we strive to provide a wide range of programming to fit all people. We have a wide variety of student and staff-run social, religious, educational, and cultural programs.

Kenyon Hillel has a new building that includes a kosher kitchen (meat and dairy sides).

Our student programming includes social events, learning opportunities, Shabbat and holiday services, Shabbat dinners, holiday meals, social justice programs, and more.
