Student Committees

Become a Leader at USC Hillel!

Interested in a leadership opportunity at Hillel? We are looking for a dynamic group of students to make Jewish life at USC the best it can be! Hillel wants to organize programs, trips, meals, service projects, and whatever YOU are looking for! Contact Nora at or Bailey at for more information.

Shabbat Committee

Hillel hosts services and dinners every week! When there is not Shabbat dinner in the building, USC Hillel hosts a program called Shabbat in a Box. Students will be given everything they need to host Shabbat dinner in their own dorm, apartment or house, including ritual items and blessings, recipes, notes on the Torah portion, and a gift card to the local grocery store!
If you would like to get involved with Shabbat, we would love to have you. Please contact our Assistant Director, Andrew Max, at to get involved!

Social Committee

The social committee works closely with the student president to plan events, both around holidays and generally of interest to Jewish students. Please get involved by coming to open student board meetings this year to help plan events and outings that you want to see happen at Hillel!

Freshmen Engagement Committee

As anyone who’s ever been on FreshFest (our annual Jewish freshmen orientation program) knows, Hillel student leaders work hard to engage new freshmen and get them involved with Hillel and Jewish life on campus. Our FreshFest co-chairs and 36 Freshmen Engagement Fellows not only serve as counselors on FreshFest itself, but continue to engage Jewish freshmen throughout the year. FEF’s (Freshmen Engagement Fellows) meet monthly to check-in, learn new tools for engagement, and plan programs specifically for Jewish freshmen.

Tzedek Committee

Tzedek—social justice—is an important part of Hillel and what we’re all about. That said, tzedek initiatives only get off the ground with student support and initiative. Get involved today to plan social justice initiatives, which we will have monthly throughout the year, both through Hillel and justice work with other multicultural and religious groups on campus. Contact Eitan at for more information.

Jewish Learning

USC Hillel is proud to support programming for students of all backgrounds interested in Jewish learning. There are many opportunities to personalize your learning, as well as ongoing programs.
