Middlebury College Hillel

Contact information- Associate Chaplain/Hillel Advisor at Middlebury College - Rabbi Ira Schiffer [email protected]  or (802) 443-5762

Mission Statement- The purpose of Hillel is to provide an outlet for those interested in Judaism and Jewish issues. Such outlets may include, but are not limited to, the provision of religious services, the maintenance of a kosher kitchen, the sponsorship of educational events relating to Jewish issues, and the support of events whose purpose is to bring together Jewish students on campus in a social environment. In addition Hillel strives to promote social justice and Israel awareness. Hillel will endeavor to address the needs of Jewish students on campus.

Organization Description- We are a group of enthusiastic, fun-loving students on campus who enjoy each other’s company at Friday night services and dinners, on various Jewish holidays, and at other fun Hillel-sponsored events. Members are predominantly (but not exclusively) Jewish, and share a love for Laurel’s fresh-made Challah.
