Religious Life

Judaism as a Religion: The concept that the Jewish People are in a covenantal relationship with God, and our obligations, activities, and beliefs associated with Judaism are in service of that relationship. We welcome all Jews who pursue Jewish life through a religious lense across the spectrum of denominational or ethnic backgrounds, traditions, habits, and beliefs.


Minyanim (prayer services), shi’urim (classes), events, discussion groups - Hillel has them all! The Orthodox Union's Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus (OU-JLIC) - a project of the Orthodox Union in partnership with Hillel - leads our service to the large Orthodox student population (the second largest Orthodox student population in the country). OU-JLIC at Queens College Co-Directors Rabbi Robby and Shoshana Charnoff, along with their team of Educators and Fellows, teach classes; run men’s, women’s, and co-ed programming and events; mentor students; host students in their home for Shabbat meals; help organize minyanim; and much more.


In addition to OU-JLIC, Hillel Club's Religious Life Coordinator organizes monthly high-level learning opportunities available to interested students with amazing partners such as Mechon Hadar, Drisha, and Pardes.
