Hillels of Memphis enriches the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.

New Morris S. Fogelman Jewish Student Center.

We envision a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel.


As a pluralistic Jewish student organization, Hillels of Memphis strives to make this vision a reality at University of Memphis and Rhodes College. 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.
