To properly create Jewish opportunities for students at Northwestern University, Hillel partners with a variety of organizations that enhance the work that we do on campus.

The Hillels of Illinois adds value, support, and guidance to Northwestern Hillel. Through programs and opportunities such as the Lewis Summer Intern Program, Israel Education Center, and Israel travel opportunities - THOI and JUF have continued to provide meaningful Jewish experiences for the Jewish students of Northwestern. The Hillels of Illinois also provides significant funding annually to Northwestern Hillel.
