  • Biographical or Historical Information

    Hillel at Brandeis -- a non-profit, independent affiliate of Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life -- was established (ca. 1949) with the goals of cultivating and contributing to Jewish life at Brandeis University.  Since its inception, Hillel has assisted students in learning about Jewish heritage and culture, and provided them with opportunities for religious expression and spiritual guidance.  In addition, the organization has encouraged students to develop a sense of commitment and responsibility to others through experiences that foster leadership, social action, and artistic and cultural expression.  The first director of Hillel at Brandeis was Rabbi Judah Stampfer.  Stampfer was followed by Albert Axelrad, the University's Rabbi and Hillel Director from 1965 to 1999.  The current Executive Director of Hillel is Larry Sternberg.
