The Helene G. Simon Hillel Center at Indiana University is dedicated to assuring that Jewish college students have opportunities to recognize and develop their leadership potential and to express their Jewishness in many traditional and creative ways.
The Hillel staff, the statewide governing board (composed of experienced lay leaders from around Indiana), and the student leadership cabinet are committed to creating a strong, diverse Hillel experience. Therefore, the Center provides religious, cultural, and social programming opportunities to assist in the creation of a Jewish community on the IU campus.
Indiana Hillel strives to be a "Jewish home away from home" for students attending IU. The Center is open 9am-10pm during the week, 9am-Shabbat on Friday, and noon-8pm on Sunday to provide ample opportunity for students to utilize the facilities. The center has a big screen TV, a pool table and ping-pong table, a full Cybex workout circuit, as well as lots of comfortable couches to relax on.
