UF Hillel runs a wide array of programs designed to enhance the Jewish awareness of our students including spiritual, cultural, historic, and Israel-based programming. We have our own student board, Manoah (Hebrew for Engine) and work closely with the UF Jewish Student Union (JSU), the recognized UF Jewish student group on campus. While the boards operate autonomously, they work collaboratively on many committees including Jewish education, social justice, Israel, social, and Shabbat and holidays. Together, with our staff, they plan programs, events and holiday celebrations that are open to the entire Gainesville Jewish university student population. Students are encouraged to pursue their ideas, take the initiative, as well as get involved with existing projects and committees. For those not on a committee - students with good ideas are still provided funding and mentoring. The only limitations we have are our own imaginations!
