Wake Forest Hillel


We invite you to come and experience Jewish Life on the campus of Wake Forest University.  The Office of Jewish Life is the umbrella that resources and links all Jewish organizations and activities on campus.  Many of our programs and activities are open to the entire community.

We have an active Hillel chapter with a membership of over 300 Jewish undergraduate students, and often have 50 or more Jewish students at our bi-weekly Shabbat dinners, and other social and religious events.


We have a dynamic Jewish fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi).  The WFU chapter was established in 2012, and most of the brothers are Jewish. We are active in service projects on campus and in the community.

We have an Interdisciplinary Jewish Studies Minor, with a wide variety of class offerings through numerous academic departments, taught by our outstanding professors.

We look forward to welcoming you into our vibrant and connected WFU Jewish community.
