The Hillel Foundation of Orange County seeks to enrich the lives of Jewish students at the Orange County colleges and universities so that they will enrich the lives of Jewish people around the world.
With activities ranging from Jewish education, Israel involvement, and social events, Chapman Hillel gives our students different opportunities to engage with Judaism and Jewish students. We strive to connect with all students on campus and want to understand their needs so we can create the best experience for them.

Hillel at UC Irvine
Hillel at UCI thinks about programming with one central goal: creating and fostering a positive Jewish Community for students. We have Israeli and Jewish cooking classes, spring break trips to help repair the world (Tikkun Olam), festivals on campus, and weekly office hours at Starbucks. Every year our student leaders design our calendar in a way that best reflects the needs of our community, which provides our student body with the most enriching programming possible.
Cal State Fullerton Hillel
As your home away from home, Fullerton Hillel creates a strong and tight knit community on the CSUF campus. Hosting about 3 events every week, Fullerton Hillel gives students a multiplicity of opportunities to get engaged in the Jewish community with activities ranging from Shabbat, Jewish education, Israel involvement, frequent social events, and fully immersive experiences such as AIPAC and Birthright.
