Hillel at FSU
Some students come to #FSU just knowing they will be deeply involved in #Jewish life from day one. From the first Shabbat of their freshman year, these students can truly say, #YouHadMeAtHillel . Robyn Kast was a student leader and President of FSU Hillel’s Student Board. Wiatt Bowers was also deeply involved at FSU Hillel as a student, and now both of these amazing #FSUAlumni serve on our Board of Directors and are sharing what FSU Hillel means to them. As part of #HillelGlobalGivingWeek , every dollar you give will be DOUBLED so that we can continue to support the passionate Jewish students of today as they become the Jewish leaders of the future, like Robyn and Wiatt! https://donate.hillel.org/donate/support-fsu-jewish-students-today#seminoles #jewishandproud #floridastateuniversityFSU Jewish Alumni Network See MoreSee Less

Explore Judaism in a way that is meaningful to you.

We are students, staff, and lay leaders dedicated to providing a welcoming, pluralistic, and inclusive atmosphere on campus. Pluralism is always at the core of what we do, and we recognize that there is not just one way to "be Jewish." Students come from diverse backgrounds and beliefs. Our goal is to provide opportunities for students to explore their Judaism in a way that is meaningful to them.

Florida State University is home to nearly 4000 Jewish students. Hillel at FSU and the other strong campus-based Jewish organizations like AIPAC, Mishelanu, Yehudi, and Chabad provide diverse opportunities for making Jewish choices while being a student at FSU. One out of every five FSU students participates in Greek life. In an effort to foster meaningful Jewish connections within these social circles, Hillel partners with fraternities and sororities to empower students to be Greek and Jewish.

We, the student board members of Hillel at FSU, affirm that we are not a political advocacy organization. Hillel International 'envisions a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.' As such, we will continue, as student Seminoles, 'to enrich the lives of Jewish students so they may enrich their community and the world.'​
