The Marcus Hillel Center, which opened in spring 2010, is home to Hillel at Emory and Hillels of Georgia and serves as the nexus of Jewish campus life for Emory University and the Metro Atlanta campuses. It is a place for Jewish students to meet friends, feel at home, and discover meaningful Jewish experiences, and it is also a resource open to the entire Emory community. The 10,500 square-foot, modern, state-of-the-art facility features comfortable meeting rooms, wireless Internet access, a student leadership center with computers and worktables, a kosher café, a living room with a bigscreen TV, a Jewish resource center, and professional offices.
Visitors are invited to drop in at any time to attend events, enjoy a meal at Goodfriend's Grill @ Ray's Bistro, study or just hang out. You will discover a welcoming Jewish community at your home away from home.
PARKING: Limited parking is available in the small lot behind the Marcus Hillel Center. Visitors are encouraged to park in the 1525 Building Parking Deck. Click the map icon to the right for directions.

A small dedicated cadre of volunteers has been working diligently to raise the necessary funds – $9.2 million – for the Marcus Hillel Center at Emory University. The project was launched by visionary philanthropist Bernie Marcus and his challenge grant of $3 million from the Billi and Bernie Marcus Foundation, along with $2 million from the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta’s Community Capital Campaign held in 1997. Capital campaign co-chairs Mike Leven and Jody Franco inspired more than 200 other individuals to meet the challenge. These funds provide for the land, construction, furnishings, and a $2 million endowment to support the ongoing operation of the facility.
More than 80% of campaign funds have come from members of the Atlanta Jewish community. Thank you to all our supporters!
We only have $300,000 to go to reach our goal. Hillels of Georgia professionals and volunteers are available to discuss your participation in the Marcus Hillel Center campaign. Naming opportunities are still available (see document below). Please call our Director of Development at (404) 963-2548.
