Support Iowa Hillel

We know that many students find a home at Iowa Hillel, and that the friends they made coming to Shabbat dinner are friends for life. We want to create a community here at Iowa Hillel and your partnership in making that happen means everything to us.

We want to reach more students, put on better programs, renovate our beautiful building, and create a better Hillel that gives students a home to find a community and a place to connect to Judaism. We want Hillel to be a place where students can sit back and relax on a Friday night, find friends with common interests and create a band (like our own Citrus Sunday), and explore Judaism and their role in the community.

The Jewish students and non-Jewish students alike need Hillel so that they have a place to call home or a place to learn about a different religion, its people, and its traditions. They are counting on our support, so that they can continue enjoying Hillel without any financial barriers. Hillel doesn't charge students for attending dinners, events, or programming, and to keep functioning that way we need your help. Please consider a monthly donation or outright gift to support our work day in and day out for the Jewish students at Iowa.

To make a recurring donation, please reach out to the Executive Director, Ashley Carol-Fingerhut, at or at (319) 338-0778.
