"Come for the food. Stay for the family."

























Hillel at UTK is a student organization that gives students the opportunity to interact and be part of a Jewish community on campus. We host a wide range of Judaic events, including Shabbat dinners, holiday celebrations, and other social events. Additionally, Hillel at UTK serves to link students to Jewish life in Knoxville.



Hillel at the University of Tennessee Knoxville inspires students to explore and embrace Jewish life.



Students develop identities that encompass Jewish life, learning, and values.
