It is the external face and spokesperson of Hillel to the University and the community at large.​ Student board implements strategic vision for Hillel leadership team, ensures the duties and obligations of the organization are met, and maintains a lively jewish community on campus through social, religious and community outreach programs and community service and social action events.​

Illini Public Affairs Committee- IlliniPAC

For over three decades, Illini Public Affairs Committee (IlliniPAC) has strongly supported the U.S.-Israel relationship at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We do so by advocating for elected officials to support a strong U.S.-Israel alliance, educating the student body about the benefits of strong ties between the two nations, and engaging student leaders across campus to promote a pro-Israel environment at the University. Members of IlliniPAC have the opportunity to travel to the annual AIPAC Conference held in Washington DC and lobby for pro-Israel initatives. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Illinipac
