Hillel at SMU

Hillel at SMU is your Jewish home away from home, serving as the center of Jewish life on campus for approximately 300 Jewish students. By hosting a wide variety of Jewish social, cultural, educational, Shabbat and holiday programs, we bring together Mustangs for friendship, meaning and fun. We are a warm, and inclusive group so join us and attend programs as often as you are able. Please become a member of our Facebook group, Hillel at SMU, to be invited to all upcoming events. Thanks!
