Beach Hillel connects Jewish students both with each other, as well as with our Jewish tradition through a variety of programming, facilitated by our welcoming staff. Dedicated to our students’ religious education and cultural enrichment, our top programming goals are to encourage Jewish students to be involved in the Beach Hillel Jewish community while they are in school, as well as to inspire them to remain an active part of their Jewish community after they graduate.
