All of our in-person events are outside and are for current Hillel 818 students between the ages 18 and 25. You must show proof of vaccination or a recent COVID test for our in-person events. Please review our COVID safety protocol and community guidelines before you attend our events.


Happy Hour

Grab a drink and some food to nosh on with Hillel 818! It's also a great time to meet our new Israel Fellow, Diana, in person! Meet us at Hand Brewed Beer at 5pm! This event is for all of our current Hillel 818 students, but you have to be 21 years or older to get alcohol. First drink on us! What better way to reunite with old friends and start off the school year than over drinks and yummy appetizers?
