Center for Jewish Life/Hillel

The Center for Jewish Life is “the Jewish address” at RCC.  We offer a welcoming, positive and fun environment for Jewish students of all backgrounds to interact and learn about their heritage.  It’s also a great place to hang out, chill, get a kosher snack and meet new people! Whether your familiarity with Jewish life is strong, limited or even non-existent, you will find friendly faces and fun activities.
