Hillel proudly offers a wide range of programs for students of all background. Below are highlights of some of our annual programs offered. Check out the calendar for more details!

Shabbat Dinners

Hillel hosts Shabbat dinners at least twice a month during Fall and Spring Semesters, both on and off campus. Please see the calendar for upcoming dates.

Holidays with Hillel

Hillel celebrates holidays both on and off campus. We are fortunate the Knoxville Jewish community welcoming our students to join them for holidays.

Jewish Faculty Networking Event

During the Fall Semester, our students are treated to a networking event with our Jewish faculty. This provides Jewish students and Jewish faculty an opportunity to meet, connect, and encourage mentoring on our campus. Sometimes it's about who you know!

Israel Programs

Hillel at UTK students participate in Israel programs both near and far. On campus, students are involved in Israel discussions and events. Students also participate in Taglit Birthright trips and AIPAC conferences.

Community Service

At UTK, volunteering is in our blood! In Judaism, it is a tradition to provide tikun olam, repairing the world. Students give back to campus and the community through opportunities throughout the year.
