The Zachs Hillel House is a comfortable, friendly space for students of all backgrounds and interests to gather and participate in Hillel activities.

The House, made possible through the generosity of Henry Zachs ’56 and family, is a striking symbol of the vibrant Jewish life at Trinity. Since its dedication in May 2002, it has become a thriving center for Jewish cultural and social events, lectures, religious services, and kosher meals.

The 8,000-square-foot facility boasts a large multi-function space for prayer, lectures, and other gatherings; a complete kosher kitchen; a large dining room; a library; a recreational area; a living room; and several smaller meeting rooms for studying and lounging.
