About the Glickman Hillel Center:
Located on a vacant 0.8-acre parcel at the gateway to La Jolla, the Beverly and Joseph Glickman Hillel Center will be a convening space for Jewish life at UC San Diego, giving students the resources they need to convene, grow and thrive. After a nearly 20-year effort, UC San Diego Hillel received the unanimous approval of San Diego’s City Council to build the center on October 3, 2017. At the age of 100, neighbor and Hillel supporter Joseph “Chickie” Glickman made the lead pledge of $5 million in 2016 to construct the center. We anticipate a total campaign goal of $15 million.
