Who We Are

Hillel Council of New England (HCNE) provides staff and programming to nine New England Colleges with emerging Jewish communities.  Our goal is to enrich students' lives with a home and a place to explore their Jewish identity during their college journey.  Whether it be celebrating Jewish holidays, learning opportunities, pastoral care, Taglit-Birthright and other service projects,  HCNE is the foundation that completes the circle of Jewish campus life.



HCNE hosts Largest Regional Hillel Student Leadership Conference

Hillel Council of New England hosted the Regional Student Leadership Conference on November 8th at Simmons College.  It was the largest gathering of campuses in recent history, comprising of 70 students representing 16 colleges and universities from across Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  The goal of the conference was to bring Jewish student leaders together to connect and learn from each other as well as from experts in the field. 

As a regional office, HCNE was able to facilitate an event of this magnitude.  HCNE provides staff and programming to six small campuses, support for emerging campuses and professional development to Hillel professionals throughout New England. HCNE advised and supported a student-initiated planning committee, representing student leaders from five very different campuses, including Boston College, Emerson College, Clark University, Boston University, and Brandeis University.  To read more, click HERE.
