Religious Life and Learning
Students at MIT come from diverse Jewish backgrounds. MIT and Hillel provide a sound structure for the variety of needs that students arrive with: Kosher dining, Shabbat and Holiday services, living situations that are tailored to those with an observant lifestyle, Torah classes, and much more. While we certainly offer services for students who already identify as Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform, we support each student’s Jewish journey toward exploring and understanding how they can individually connect to Jewish life. Through classes, services, discussions, one-on-one meetings, inter-faith gatherings, field trips and cultural events, we continuously attempt to evoke the important questions our students might want to consider in order to become more self-aware as Jews. The results are often astounding.
