Jewish Life and Multicultural Connection
Open Doors and Open Hearts Create Open Minds
In their own words…
For decades Queens University of Charlotte has been open to Jewish students. In 2013, Queens intentionally expanded Jewish life on campus. In 2014, Talli Dippold was hired as the first Director of Jewish Life and a campus Hillel was created. In 2015, Jewish cultural programs blossomed as the Hillel group on campus solidified. In 2016, Rabbi Judy Schindler joined Queens as an Associate Professor of Jewish Studies.
Students, staff and faculty celebrate simple and sacred time together marking Jewish holidays and Shabbat, simply hanging out, and creating multicultural programs in partnership with other organizations. We are a supportive Hillel family and look forward to welcoming new students. The Queens Jewish Life Program aims to also engage the Queens community of all faiths in Jewish cultural, holiday and educational events and supports involvement in the interfaith fabric of Queens through dialogues and interfaith programs.

The Stan Greenspon Center’s physical location in the center of Queens’ Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement (DICE) Suite reflects its core values. In our suite, reside many of the Queens multicultural organizations. In socializing and in working together, we build transformative relationships. We hear each other’s stories, respond to each other’s pain, and work to create a more inclusive campus environment and Charlotte community.
