Jewish Student Life

Support Jewish Life and Learning at Santa Cruz Hillel

Thank you for your generosity and ensuring a vibrant Jewish experience for every student. Santa Cruz Hillel provides programming and connections to the 1,000+ Jewish students at UC Santa Cruz, Cabrillo College, and CSU Monterey Bay, made possible through the support of donors like you.

All donations to Santa Cruz Hillel are tax-deductible.

With your generous gift, Santa Cruz Hillel supports students in their Jewish journeys during a transformational period in their lives. We help them explore what it means to be Jewish to them and how they want to connect to their Judaism. Whether it’s a student’s first Jewish experience with their Jewish roots, or a continuation of their Jewish trajectory, Santa Cruz Hillel is there to be a friend, a guide, and mentor, and place to build connections with fellow Jewish students. Your donation to Santa Cruz Hillel is an investment in today's students and the next-generation of our Jewish community.
