Celebrating 50 Years!

In 2017, Stony Brook Hillel celebrated 50 years on campus! The milestone was marked with a gala event featuring some of our amazing alumni, dedicated board members and current student leadership.

All around, people were sharing warm memories of their time at Stony Brook Hillel and the exciting things they have accomplished since graduating. We welcomed back former Hillel staff members and representatives from Hillel International and Stony Brook University.

Our current student leaders were able to hear about programs from the last 5 decades, meet many of the folks that support their initiatives today and share what is happening at Hillel now.


Old memories were shared via our online journal and new memories were captured in photos.


A huge thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us! We look forward to another 50 years!
