Several community leaders and members joined Hillels of Georgia to break ground on the new Hillel Center at UGA on April 24.
UGA Hillel will renovate the former Baxter Street Bookstore. The new 10,000-square-foot building will be a space for UGA’s Jewish community to focus on programming, fellowship and community development.
UGA Hillel is the second largest Jewish student community in the state and offers programming such as a Jewish Learning Fellowship, Shabbat dinners, game day parking and events, yoga, community service, Onward Israel internships and Birthright trips to Israel to Jewish UGA students.
Construction is expected to begin in June, and the facility is expected to open in fall 2023.
