Through your participation in the Hillel at Virginia Tech’s Parent’s Circle you can ensure that the Jewish community at Virginia Tech remains vibrant and strong by providing support for our programs.

At the same time, you can take comfort in knowing that your student will be welcomed into a home away from home and that Hillel is there to help.

From chicken soup deliveries to High Holiday celebrations, weekly Shabbat Dinners, Israel advocacy and social justice programs, Hillel at Virginia Tech serves the growing Jewish student population in Blacksburg. All of these critical programs are funded entirely by the generosity of parents, alumni and friends of Hillel at VT.

cute chickenThe Chicken Soup Hotline!

We understand how it feels to get a phone call from your sick child at school. While we are not doctors, the age-old formula, now confirmed by medical research as a remedy for the Common Cold and is just what Jewish parents want for their children… a bowl of hot chicken soup with matzah balls (vegetarian option available).

The Chicken Soup Hotline is easy and convenient…

  1. Contact us when your child is sick 540-951-2060 or email hillel@vt.edu
  2. We deliver hot chicken soup to your child’s dorm or apartment.
  3. We call you back after the soup is delivered to let you know how your child is doing
