USC Hillel is committed to enhancing student well-being and cultivating a healthy community through our Bradley Sonnenberg Wellness Initiative. The initiative focuses on physical and mental health programs, including one-on-one professional counseling as well as peer-to-peer support. This ensures that any student who comes to Hillel, regardless of religious identity, receives services to meet their needs, with an eventual goal of developing a roadmap to healthier experiences. As part of our physical wellness programming, USC Hillel offers weekly yoga, hiking and intramural sports.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, USC Hillel’s Bradley Sonnenberg Wellness Initiative has transcended limitations and has become an interactive online presence dedicated to maintaining USC’s thriving Jewish community. To combat feelings of loneliness and anxiety, and to help students build coping skills, USC Hillel is particularly proud to continue providing:
Student Wellness Sessions
Pre-recorded online workout and wellness classes
Virtual Telehealth counseling for students in residence in California
The initiative is possible only through the generous support of Glenn and Andrea Sonnenberg, in memory of their son,
along with a Cutting Edge Grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles.
