MISSION STATEMENT:

The Brooklyn College Hillel seeks to strengthen Jewish identity among the college's Jewish students; to sustain and develop their commitment to Israel; to increase understanding both between Jewish groups and between Jews and others; to foster a climate of tolerance through a pluralistic approach; to engage its students through Jewish learning opportunities, arts, culture, recreation and religious experience; to cultivate students’ participation in social action; and to utilize the resources of Jewish partner organizations and agencies, as well as those of the city. Tanger Hillel Board of Trustees supports these efforts by providing financial resources and fiscal, building, and program oversight in conformity with governance standards established by the International Hillel Center.
