Hillel believes strongly that pluralism is a core Jewish value. We recognize that students come from all different backgrounds - religious, ethnic, socio-economic, and more. We welcome students from all backgrounds to participate fully in our community. We strive to help our students engage in deep understanding of all the Jewish students at Queens College.
We further understand that the plurality of Jewish experiences, backgrounds, and beliefs are important and should be celebrated. We work hard to meet the needs of each of our students so that they have access to the most meaningful Jewish experiences for them. This includes access to Jewish learning opportunities from many different perspectives, different ways to engage with Israel, and opportunities to celebrate and learn about the diversity of Jewish ethnicities and cultures.
We seek to construct a community that is greater than the sum of its component parts. We offer simultaneous, yet independent prayer services and work with student groups and coalitions representing the plurality of Jewish life in America.
