While Ferris doesn’t currently have a campus Hillel, Jewish students have been actively working to build a community.  Last year, Jewish students helped organize Holocaust and Zionist programs on campus. To get involved in building a Hillel, contact us through our Facebook page or send an email to Dr. Mehler.
