Check out all the great things we have planned

Rosh Hashanah meals are free to our students, thanks to a generous endowment gift made by Firouz and Nasrin Gahvari in memory of their son, Hormozd. Hormozd was an active student and graduate student at Illini Hillel for many years. He passed away at a young age on the eve of Rosh Hashana in 2016, after a long battle with Ewing Sarcoma. This meaningful and unique endowment will allow us to celebrate his life today and in the future.
