Hillel International brings Jewish volunteers together to restore Jewish ruined cemeteries in the city of Kopyl, Belarus, and make catalogs of ancient headstones. They introduce volunteers to the Jewish culture and traditions, local Jewish communities, heritage sites and offer volunteer activities to save the past for the sake of the future.
Hillel is the largest Jewish campus organization in the world, working with thousands of college students globally. Hillel’s expansive global infrastructure ensures that, each year, we reach hundreds of thousands of Jewish students. From Texas to Tel Aviv, Toronto to Tbilisi, Hillel is the address for Jewish student life. There are more than 30 Hillels outside of the United States, in Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Moldova, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and Uruguay. Around the world, Hillel customizes its work to the unique elements of Jewish students, communities, and universities. Hillel International’s mission is “enriching the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world” through its on-campus network.
