Hillel supports students worldwide in lockdown

Organisation is supporting 'thousands of Jewish students struggling with isolation, food insecurity and the impact of the coronavirus'

Hillel International has said it is supporting “thousands of Jewish students struggling with isolation, food insecurity and the impact of the coronavirus” on themselves and their families through a range of innovative ideas.

Among the Hillel responses has been to provide kerbside delivery of boxed meals and arranging calls to every Jewish student to check in on their mental health, organising extended conversations with at-risk students.

Hillel’s online hub has served as a volunteering portal for students to give back to their community throughout the pandemic, and virtual campus visits have connected Jewish schoolchildren with Jewish students at the universities they want to attend.

Hillel International held its first global fundraising initiative last week after locked-down students in cities and campuses around the world sought additional help during
the pandemic.
