  • Introducing our Israeli Fellow!

    Born and raised in a traditional Jewish family in Shoham, Israel, Shiran brings a unique and refreshing perspective to Portland Hillel. She attended IDC Herzlyia, a private college in Israel majoring in Finance and did a semester abroad in Nova Scotia. She has a diverse background that includes time in the military, travel to North America, and work​ experience ranging from fitness to marketing to volunteering for non-profits focused on children's heart disease. Her warm compassion and wide smile have helped to brighten Portland campuses this fall. When she's not engaging Jewish students, or laughing with her co-workers, Shiran likes to play soccer and cook the food of her upbringing. 
  • Welcome to Greater Portland Hillel!

    Birthright Group
    Portland was one of the largest metropolitan cities in the country that was without a Hillel... we are proud to announce that the largest Jewish campus organization in the world has come to Stump Town!

    Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life provides opportunities for Jewish students at more than 500 colleges and universities to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity through its global network of regional centers, campus Foundations and Hillel student organizations. Hillel is working to provoke a renaissance of Jewish life.

    Hillel's mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Hillel student leaders, professionals and lay leaders are dedicated to creating a pluralistic, welcoming and inclusive environment for Jewish college students, where they are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially. Hillel helps students find a balance in being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek (social justice), tikkun olam (repairing the world) and Jewish learning, and to support Israel and global Jewish peoplehood. Hillel is committed to excellence, innovation, accountability and results.
  • Leadership Training

    Alternative Spring Break

    Leadership Trainings and Retreats are a weekend trip where student leaders commit to connecting with their peers.  Participants focus on leadership skills, Jewish life values, Israel, and campus entrepreneurship.  These weekends are used for both student leaders as well as Birthright Israel alumni.  So far retreat sites have been donated.
