Hillel Annual Charity Golf Tournament
Thanks for joining us at Hillel's Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Monday August 3, 2020. Your participation in Hillel golf helped us to be there for our 2,000 students around Denver and Fort Collins when they need us more than ever. Save the date for next year’s tournament - Monday 07/26/2021.
Denver University Hillel is a proud part of Hillel of Colorado – which also includes the Colorado State Hillel – serving students with traditional programming such as Shabbat dinners, holiday celebrations, social justice initiatives, and religious and social programs; leadership programs to train the Jewish leaders of tomorrow, and Israel programs including Birthright Israel travel opportunities and Israel education, dialogue, and advocacy programs.
At DU Hillel’s home-away-from-home we offer our students Shabbat dinners; a full menu of Holiday and Social Justice programs; and Leadership Development opportunities. Join us every Friday night at the Merage & Allon DU Hillel Center (and virtually during COVID-19) for a short, student-led Kabbalat Shabbat service, dinner, and community experience: our amazing students take the lead in planning and implementing all of our programs. Together with our student leaders, we are now working on fall 2020 programs that will be creative, fun and safe during the time of COVID-19. Stay tuned for updates on our website calendar and social media.
It is for good reason that the Jewish people are called – “People of the Book”. Learning is a core value in Judaism, so at Hillel we offer learning groups on engaging topics such as:
- Israel: its beauty and challenges;
- Judaism: Dilemmas and questions coming up while connecting our modern life with ancient wisdom;
- Tikun Olam and personal wellness: Using Jewish law and custom to care for ourselves and our surroundings.
Our core student-led staff-supported programming is built on traditional Jewish practices such as Kabbalat Shabbat, Friday evening dinner, holiday celebrations, Jewish learning, social justice initiatives, and religious and social programs.All Events

A Word From Our Campus Director
In a time with quick changes and many questions, I wish you comfort, calm, and health, and want to remind you to have somebody(ies) to lean on. Please feel free to email or call if you want to talk. We are aligning with the new DU policy and moving to mostly online activity. Together with our student leaders we are thinking out of the box to find the best, most creative ways to keep celebrating our Judaism with you even during the time of COVID. We, of course, will do this with much responsibility, and commitment to keep our students, staff and their family safe and healthy.
We’ll make it through, and I look forward to talking with you on the phone, Zoom, other virtual platform, or one on one socially distanced at the park.
Sending good vibes to everyone, NoamContact Me

Today’s Hillel Board Bio is our Music Intern, Yael Greene:
Hi! My name is Yael Greene and I’m from Erie, Colorado. I use she/her/hers pronouns and I’m a Religious Studies major at Regis University. I am the Music Intern for our Hillel. I come to Hillel because I wanted to continue my involvement in the Jewish community and have a place where I could pray and celebrate the holidays!
I went to 2 Jewish camps for 9 years at URJ Camp Coleman and URJ Kutz Camp, and I’ll be working at URJ 6 Points Sports North Carolina for my 10th summer at camp. I was also involved in NFTY Missouri Valley and studied abroad at the University of Haifa in Israel.
My favorite color is purple, my favorite TV show is Brooklyn 99, and I lived in 4 states, and one of my cousins is Barbra Streisand.
