Find Your People. Let Hillel do the work for you.
Do you want to connect with other Jews who share similar interests and passions? Now’s your chance. Introducing J-Squad, UF Hillel’s newest cohort-based community. J-Squads are small groups (4-6 members per group) made up of students from different years, connected by shared interests. This is your chance to expand your social network, support one another, and develop lasting friendships.
What is J-Squad?
J-Squads are small groups (4-6 members per group) made up of students from different years, connected by shared interests. Perhaps your J-Squad members are all studying communications, or all share a love of movies. Whatever your interests are, there are other students who share them.
What do J-Squads do?
Students in J-Squads will meet regularly, at least once a month, for dinners, Shabbatot, and fun competitions against other J-Squads, in-person or virtually. You can also plan your own activities and hang out with your J-Squad as much as you like.
How do I get involved in J-Squad?
Easy! Fill out a short information form and members of our Student Cabinet will follow up with you by phone. During this call, you'll tell us what you like to do in your free time, about your passions, and things you value most in friendships. Student Cabinet members will then match you with 4-5 other students to complete your J-Squad.
The J-Squad interest form is currently closed, and will reopen in August 2021. For questions or additional information, please contact Marya Slade, Director of Jewish Student Life.
