First Year Students at Hillel
First Year Students at Hillel (FYSH) is an innovative program that provides compelling and engaging entry-points to Jewish life for incoming freshman on the Claremont campuses. Our goal is to provide a strong foundation of Jewish-identified engagement opportunities right out of the gates, building a basis for continuity and growth, and participation in our Hillel community. FYSH has many great experiential, interactive, spiritual, social, educational, and identity-building programs planned. We have hosted the Welcome Barbeque, the Jewish Community Retreat, field trips to Yogurt Land, Lazer Tag and look forward to many more events!
Hillel is located at the McAlister Center on the Claremont Colleges Services section of the Claremont Colleges, next to Honnold Mudd Library. Feel free to drop by, or e-mail Rabbi Danny if you’re planning a campus visit so we can be sure someone will be around to meet you. The street address is

Claremont, CA 91711-3904
at the corner of Columbia and 9th Street.
