Glickman Hillel Center for Jewish Life

With approvals in hand and $11.7 million raised toward a $15 million capital campaign goal, Hillel now stands at the precipice of realizing the long-held dream of building a permanent Hillel facility in La Jolla. With the Glickman Hillel Center, UC San Diego Hillel will be able to grow its impact and transform the lives of generations of students to come.

To commemorate the generosity of its supporters, Hillel of San Diego will thank and make a public and enduring record of those who contribute generously to the creation of the Glickman Hillel Center with select features designated for commemorative naming purposes.
