Welcome To Boston College's Hillel

The Hillel of Boston College helps to serve the social, cultural and religious needs of Jewish students and to enrich campus culture for all. We welcome members of the Boston College community from all backgrounds to our events and our community.

Boston College began in 1863 as a small Jesuit college for young men. It is now an internationally renowned university with a culturally, religiously and ethnically diverse coeducational student body. The BC faculty is similarly diverse, with committed individuals from each department and from the surrounding Jewish communities in Newton and Brookline.

BC connects to the greater Boston Jewish communities as a part of Hillel Council of New England. Hillel Council brings together students from all over New England, with BC students participating in local, national, and international trips and conferences.
