Hillel at Maryville University provides opportunities for students to learn, lead and grow Jewishly. Hillel at Maryville University serves Jewish students, faculty, staff and friends at Maryville University and in the surrounding community through engaging programs that explore and celebrate Jewish life. Hillel provides social and spiritual opportunities that help students explore their Judaism and connect with others on campus and in the greater St. Louis community. Students join Hillel from cities across the country and here in St. Louis to create a community that is warm and pluralistic, welcoming those from the entire spectrum of Jewish life.

Hillel at Maryville University’s signature programs include Challah for Hunger; Dinner and a Movie film series; Pizza in the Hut at the Maryville Sukkah; Harvest Your Own Dinner: Fresh from the Field Sukkot; Jewish Cultural Food Fest; annual Holocaust survivor visit; LatkeFest; Jewish Cooking Experience LIVE!; Make-Your-Own Purim Mishloach Manot; Chocolate Seder; Shabbat dinners; home hospitality with faculty and staff for Jewish holidays; and opportunities to engage in social justice and service programs, interfaith learning opportunities and events featuring prominent Jewish figures. Students have had the opportunity to meet such Jewish leaders as former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, and Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and National Director of the Anti-Defamation League. Hillel at Maryville University students are eligible for the free 10-day Birthright Israel trip alongside peers and friends from Hillels across the country. Maryville Hillel was recognized by Hillel International with the 2017 Campus Partnership Award for innovative programming with campus and community partners.
