What does Hillel cost?
All of our Hillel programming is free for current University of Florida and Santa Fe students. There is no membership fee or sign-up commitment. We do ask that students RSVP for events in advance so we can plan appropriately. Upcoming events can be found at ufhillel.org/rsvp
Is Hillel only for Jewish Students?
Hillel programs are open to all students
What kinds of religious services are available?
Religious services are only part of what Hillel has to offer. We're proud to offer student-led Shabbat evening services (traditional conservative and a musical reform) each week during the fall and spring semesters. Services are also held on High Holidays and other holidays.
Do you offer dietary accomadations?
Yes! We offer gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, and vegan options at all of our programs.
Where can I find kosher meals at UF?
Hillel offers kosher meals for Shabbat and holidays which are free and open to all students. Experience teaches us that the vast majority of kosher-observant students at UF prefer to eat vegetarian or pescatarian with their peers, either on campus or as part of Greek housing dining plans. Additionally, since generally only freshmen live on campus, most of upperclassmen have the option of cooking for themselves in their own kitchens, and, if they keep kosher, prepare meals with kosher items from local grocery stores just as Publix and Trader Joes.
