Hillel and the Jewish Community: Changing Relationships and their Policy Implications

By Oscar Groner

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, 1974

This chapter discusses the relationship between Hillel and the Jewish community, outlining Hillel's period of growth in many communities and how the Hillel community board became one of the few places where students, faculty and community leaders together plan to meet the growing needs of the Jewish campus community. The author argues that the Jewish community is at a turning point, with Jewish students eager to become involved, and urges that Hillel provide students with the basics- structures, dollars, role models, and participation in the decisions that affect their own programs.
