Graduate & Young Adult Events ~
Harvard Hillel aims to build a strong community for graduate students at Harvard and young adults in Cambridge and beyond. We provide support to the existing Jewish Student Associations at Harvard's graduate and professional schools, and we serve as a unifying body --planning and implementing programs. We strive to integrate graduate students and young adults into a multigenerational Hillel community, engaging one another in opportunities for education, social collaboration, and individual growth.
