The Rider University chapter is an official Hillel affiliate and a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Princeton Mercer Bucks. We are conveniently located across the street from Congregation Adath Israel. Students are always welcome to attend services, for weekly Shabbat services, or any of the holidays.  Adath makes available free tickets for Rider students to attend High Holiday services.  For weekly Shabbat services at Adath Israel Synagogue and other holiday observances, call Rabbi Ben Adler at (609) 896-4977.  Additional information can also be found on their website Adath Israel Congregation.

Rider Hillel is also affiliated with Chabad of Lawrenceville, led by Rabbi Yitzchak Goldenberg, who helps facilitate some of the Hillel events. Students are welcome to his synagogue, Young Israel, during the holidays and throughout the year. Additional information can be obtained at jewishlawrence.com or by calling 609-882-4330.

Rider’s Hillel provides a variety of programming throughout the year, from our Kick Off Welcome BBQ in the Fall, a Sabbath meal hosted by a local rabbi, dinner in the Sukkah and our favorite Challah-ween event, to events in the Spring that often include Challah baking, and even trips to locations such as the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Jewish History Museum in Philadelphia and the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.

Hillel is a great place to celebrate your Jewish heritage and make new friends.  We have a Facebook group that will help you get a better sense of the programming that we offer.  It can be found here.
