The North Carolina Hillel, the governing body of all North Carolina University Hillels, oversees the Appalachian State Hillel. Based in Chapel Hill but serving campuses across the state, North Carolina Hillel's staff and student interns work to create vibrant Jewish campus communities and develop our community's future leaders.
The mission of North Carolina Hillel is to “enrich the lives of North Carolina's Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. NC Hillel seeks to provide students with meaningful Jewish experiences and foster within them an enduring connection to Jewish life." - North Carolina Hillel
There are many statewide events that Appalachian State Hillel participates in each year. These events include:
Hillel Statewide Shabbat: Each semester a different University Hillel hosts a Statewide Shabbat including a service, dinner, and party. Any Hillel member may participate in this fun and exciting weekend. Contact a Board Member for more information.
The NC Hillel Leadership Retreat: NC Hillel hosts leaders from University Hillels across the state to educate students on how to become active Jewish leaders on their campuses.
Hillel Alternative Spring Break: Each year, NC Hillel offers all members of University Hillels an opportunity to participate in a Jewish community service trip within the United States.
