Welcome to Hillel

Dear Class of 2026,

From all of us at Hillel at UCLA, MAZEL TOV on your acceptance to UCLA! 

The Hillel Student Board - a group of highly dedicated student leaders - and other Jewish Bruins will be hosting virtual and in-person events throughout the year so you can learn about Judaism and get to know other Bruins! There will be events for students entering as freshmen, transfers, and even parents! Hillel at UCLA is truly the BEST (we are sure you’ll all soon agree) and we want to showcase it to you, answer all your questions, and meet you!

All Hillel events are listed on our program calendar. We encourage you to join us if you are able to really get a sense for how strong our community is. In the meantime, please look through our website, which showcases our many wonderful student organizations and student life activities, and definitely feel free to reach out if you have any questions - here's the contact information for the rest of the Student Board, and contact information for our Student Life staff. We look forward to connecting with you soon and seeing you on campus in the fall!

L'Chaim, Go Bruins, and see you soon!

Ellie Cohen and Ilan Berdy
