Family Weekend

MIT sponsors a special weekend of activities for families of MIT students every October under the sponsorship of the MIT Parents Program. In conjunction with this event, MIT Hillel invites parents to join the campus Jewish community for our Shabbat and special events. Consult this year's Hillel Family Weekend schedule for more information.

Annual Fund

MIT Hillel depends on the generosity of Jewish parents and alumni/ae for the majority of its annual funding. All parents are encouraged to participate in Hillel's Annual Fund Campaign. Also, opportunities exist for parents to sponsor specific Hillel programs. Donate to MIT Hillel online.
