Second Annual Halal/Kosher event

Montclair State University takes great pride in the interfaith work that takes place on campus. This Year Hillel and MSA (Muslim Student Association) Hosted our Second Annual Halal/Kosher event. The purpose of this event was to give the Students of MSU the opportunity to try both Halal and kosher food and learn about the dietary restrictions of both religions. We had over eighty people attend the event !!!!

We have committees !!!

This year in order to accommodate the growing needs of our members and the club, we are have created several new committees !!!


1) Advertising committee :  We need members to help post the flyers around campus and spread the word about our events.

2) Set up and Clean up Committee : Members will be asked to come half an hour early to  events to help set up and stay after events to help clean up.

3) Shabbat Committee: Members who have knowledge and interest in helping assist during the Shabbat service.

4)  Programing committee: Members who are interested in planning programs can work under program coordinator  to create and organize specific programs to their liking.

5) Community service committee: Members  will create community service programs and events for  Hillel and campus as a whole.

6) Newsletter committee: this committee gives our members the chance to show off their writing savy,   Hillel will be sending out monthly/ Bi-monthly newsletters  to Parents, Faculty and anyone else who wants to read it.  The newsletter will include event updates, reflections on past month and other important information that Hillel is doing.


do you see something that




Class one !

it has been years in the making, but we are very very proud to finally say that Hillel is now a Class one organization of the SGA ! Thank you for everyone’s help and support throughout the year we truly could not have done this alone !

For those of you who are looking into coming to MSU, or are not students of the school and have no idea what this means: We are a club chartered by the Student Government Association like majority of other clubs on campus. This means that we get our funding through the school, we have an office, access to reserving room, posting flyers, advisers and many other important and necessary things that are needed to run a club. Through the SGA there are different classes with Class One being the highest. Being class one means that we are held to the highest esteem by the SGA and have proven that Hillel is a vital aspect to the Montclair State university community. 

 So thank you again to everyone who has supported us throughout the years !


Happy Passover

We at msu Hillel wish everyone a happy passover.


Just a reminder we will be going to the Retreat on Feb. 8th 2013 and will be coming back Feb. 11th 2013. If you have not signed up already please contact us ASAP! The retreat is a ton of fun and we would love to see everyone there!
