Central Florida Jewish Organizations

Updated: Oct 7, 2021

Central Florida Jewish population has been growing and thriving thanks to the many Jewish organizations throughout the area. We did our best to put together a list of Jewish Organizations, Synagogues, Clubs, and groups.

What is Hillel?

Hillel International is the largest organization serving the needs of Jewish college and university students on over 550 campuses worldwide.

“A student’s involvement with Hillel is one of the strongest predictors of future Jewish leadership – stronger than Jewish day school enrollment, Jewish camp experiences, or membership in a Jewish youth group. As the leading authority on Jewish campus life, Hillel reaches, engages, and equips tomorrow’s leaders today.” -Avi Chai Foundation Study, 2010

Central Florida Hillel

Central Florida Hillel is a chapter serving UCF, Full Sail, Valencia, Seminole State. If you’re a Central Florida college student, we encourage you to get connected and involved with Central Florida Hillel. Our goal is to help students deepen their connection to Judaism through events, classes, networking, Shabbat meals, and holiday services. We foster an open and welcoming atmosphere where students can come hang out in our Hillel space and get to know one another to build relationships and friendships to last a lifetime.
