Your kids are in good hands!

Parents are indispensable members of our community! We are excited to work day and night to provide the best possible service to students, and we hope to establish an authentic relationship with parents and family members to ensure we get to know you and your children during their time at the U.

Incoming Jewish Students

The best way to start off your time at UM is experiencing UM Hillel’s FreshFest! FreshFest is a 24 hour pre-orientation program open to all incoming Jewish Freshmen. Enrolling in FreshFest allows students to learn about the opportunities open to them at Hillel, meet student leaders who can address any burning questions and start meeting the friends that will be by their side for the next four years. It helps students to get acquainted with the Jewish community before school even starts. Registration fills up quickly so be sure to enroll as soon as it opens.

Jewish life on campus

So your child is coming to the University of Miami, now what? As the central point for Jewish Life at the U, we are excited for your child to be a part of the vibrant Jewish community here in Miami. We know that students come from many different backgrounds, so UM Hillel provides opportunities to allow them to explore their Judaism on their terms as a college student. Whether they need a place to celebrate the holidays far from home, are seeking a leadership role, or looking for a community on campus, we are here to support them.

Ways of getting involved/support

We have many opportunities for students, parents, and community members to help support UM Hillel. As a non-profit organization, we rely on donations to continue to grow and improve our programming and student initiatives. Please contact Robin Agronin, Director of Development, to discuss how you can help to be a part of the UM Hillel family.
