Collection Description

Administrative History

Atlanta Hillel, an organization for Jewish college students in Atlanta, Ga., included students from Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Oglethorpe University. The organization subsequently split into campus-specific groups, including Emory Hillel, a division of Hillels of Georgia, at Emory University.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists chiefly of records of Atlanta Hillel, 1963-1988, and its successor at Emory University, Emory Hillel, 2004-2006. Atlanta Hillel files include membership applications, correspondence, subject files, public relations materials, budget reports, and information on the programs at Georgia Institute of Technology, Oglethorpe University, and Emory University. Files also include papers of the Reformed Jewish Students Committee (ca. 1982-1984) and pledge cards from the Jewish dental fraternity, Alpha Omega (ca. 1963-1977). Emory Hillel materials are chiefly printed items related to events sponsored by the organization. The collection also includes Emory Hillel's captured and preserved website, available to browse via the Web Archiving Service of the California Digital Library.
