Shabbat the Hillel Way*
Each week Hillel hosts Shabbat services and a free Shabbat Dinner on Friday nights. Services are student-led by our Religious Chair. Dinner is a fully Kosher meal with lots of food and company and features our famous Hillel Sprinkled Challah! Each week there are themes that appear in both the menu selection and atmosphere. Shabbats are a main stable to our Hillel and a favorite of the students.
* For fall 2020, Hillel has established new Shabbat opportunities: Shab-boxes and ShabbaTOTES. Each week, a kosher meal and a tote bag with Shabbat blessings, challah, a fun giveaways will be available to those who reserve them by the Monday evening of that week.
Throughout the year, Hillel also offers many different Jewish content programs during the weekdays. From holiday programming to cultural celebrations to Israel awareness , the Hillel leaders create events to fulfill the educational and spiritual needs of students.
Bagel Brunches! *
Run on a bi-weekly basis, Bagel Brunches are a great way to join the community. Students come on Sunday mornings to grab a bagel and lox before heading to the library for the day. It fills their tummys and hearts before a study filled day.
*Bagel brunches have been postponed for fall semester. We eagerly await their return.
