Israel Advocacy & Education
USF Hillel students have been recognized for their outstanding Israel Advocacy. Bulls for Israel is our student-led Israel advocacy and education group. BFI received the "Activist Campus of the Year" award from AIPAC...TWICE!! Our Israel Culture Club also sponsors speakers, Israel Parties and movies throughout the year.
We have a lot of fun, social
programs to build the Jewish community on campus, but the best social program is our regular Hillel Ice Cream Parlor. Come to USF Hillel every Monday evening from 6-8pm for delicious, homemade ice cream. We feature a new flavor every week. Bring your homework. Bring a friend, and enjoy the Hillel Ice Cream Parlor.
Shabbat takes place every week, so be sure to join old friends and new at USF Hillel for a delicious, kosher Shabbat dinner every Friday night during the fall and spring semesters at 6:30pm.

USF Hillel is a green Hillel.
Jack's garden is a lovely refuge
from the stress of academic life. We also have a compost program to reduce our waste. If you're interested in nature, gardening and protecting the environment, there are a lot of ways to get involved and make a difference.
We have also just started the newest chapter of "Scubi Jew" a Jewish environmental group that focuses on the marine environment. If you're a scuba diver or want to get certified, contact Rabbi Ed to get involved with "Scubi Jew."
Tzedek & Social Justice
USF Hillel takes part in campus wide Social Justice programs like "Relay for Life" and "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes." We also co-sponsor programs with other campus organizations that promote mutual respect and understanding between different ethnic and religious groups.
AEPi is the only Nationally Chartered Jewish Fraternity in the country. Our Chapter at USF is made up of fine young men who bring their Jewish identity together as a brotherhood. Whether for awesome parties or solid philanthropy and Tzedekah projects, AEPi is a great place for Jewish men to experience brotherhood and friendship at USF.
