Goucher Hillel, the central address for Jewish life on our campus, is a welcoming, inclusive, and pluralistic organization. Our mission is to empower Jewish students to advance their own Jewish journeys and inspire them to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life.

Welcoming Jewish Community and Dynamic Programming

With close to 350 Jewish students on campus from diverse backgrounds, our Hillel lounge and patio (at Heubeck Hall) serve as a welcoming home away from home. Our programs are designed with our students in mind, meeting them at entry points like Shabbat dinner, Israel and global Jewish life, leadership and internships, Tzedek (social justice), and events just for fun!

Kosher Dining

The Nosh station in Mary Fisher Dining Center offers delicious kosher food daily as an integrated part of the Goucher meal plan.
