Hillel & our Jewish Student Union Groups


Please join us for an amazing fundraiser concert with an amazing world class musician!


While the Jewish Fraternity (AEPi), and Sorority (Sigma AEPi) are a critical part of Hillel of Northern Nevada, there are other student groups both established and new.

AEPi is Nevada’s only Jewish fraternity. If you are interested in more information about AEPi, please visit the link above. AEPi Upsilon Nu, on Nevada Street in Reno, NV.

SAEPi is the premiere Jewish sorority at the University of Nevada. With semesterly recruitment, this organization is expanding and growing rapidly. For more information please visit the link above.


Hillel Ba’Houtz:

Ba’Houtz means “outside” in Hebrew and that is exactly where this student group likes to be. Students establish meaningful relationships with each other as both individuals and as a community through the Hillel hikes, camping trips and other outdoor activities. The events build enduring relationships, promote the enjoyment of nature, and some of our amazing natural features and views. No one gets left behind and everyone is welcome!


Challah and Chabad:

This student participation challah bake precedes a Friday Hillel Shabbat meal.

A collaboration Challah bake between Hillel and the community Chabad happens each semester on the Thursday preceding the collaborative Shabbat meal with Chabad of Northern Nevada.



J-Biz is a group of students with an interest in business that has a deeper meaning than just thinking up ways to make money. J-Biz will help our future and current entrepreneurs contemplate the long term impact of their business ideas, be they sound or not. By applying Jewish ethics with tomorrows business leaders, we hope to help create a better world using the triple bottom line methodology.





First Year Student of Hillel is a group for new students

FYSH plans one or more social event per month each fall, and invites members of the Hillel and campus community to meet and network with FYSH students.




This Hillel program is less a student group than it is an old fashion buddy system. Students are paired up based on academics and they help each other stay on their academic plans. The monthly Study Buddy meet-ups at “The Joe” are designed to allow undergrads to study in a common space and benefit from the hive mind. Study Buddy meet up days are most frequent around mid-terms and finals.
