Queens College has historically served as a commuter school. Over the last few years, however, QC built its first dormitory (called "The Summit"), signaling a commitment to creating a residential community on campus. Together with the many apartments in the block surrounding the College, there is now a large number of Jewish students who live on or near campus. That's where Hillel is stepping in.
Hillel is always bustling during the week. With programs of different kinds (discussions of modern Jewish issues, Israeli culture and history programs, Jewish learning opportunities, social justice initiatives, arts-related programs, prayer services (Shacharit, Mincha, and Ma'ariv), etc.) virtually every day, there is always something happening at Hillel. Kosher food (under the supervision of the Va'ad Harabonim of Queens) is available virtually all day at the Dairy Stop - the kosher kitchen in the campus cafeteria.
