About Hillel

Hillel at Davis and Sacramento was established in 1965 to provide a home away from home for the few hundred Jewish college students studying in the area at the time. From the mid-1960s until 2012, our Hillel operated from a small bungalow located across the street from UC Davis. In 2012, we replaced the bungalow with a beautiful new building, thereby fulfilling a long-held dream.

Today, our Hillel serves thousands of Jewish undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals in the Davis/Sacramento area. We also love to welcome alumni, parents, grandparents, and community members.

Our Hillel is a warm, vibrant place that hums with activity from morning to night. We offer a wide range of educational, social, spiritual, cultural, and tzedek programs, and no membership is required. Just come by and see what’s happening!

Rest assured - all food served at Hillel is kosher, delicious, and plentiful! During the academic year, we offer Shabbat dinner on Friday evenings, a free lunch on Tuesdays at noon, and free snacks Monday - Friday. See the calendar or Facebook for details.

Mission Statement

To enhance the lives of our Jewish students; to build a Jewish community on campus that will serve as an inspiration and model for what students can contribute to their Jewish communities after college; to provide experiences that will strengthen Jewish students’ identification with, and celebration of, their Jewish heritage; to act as the Jewish resource to the general campus community; to represent and advocate for Jewish causes and concerns, now and in the future, on campus and beyond.
