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.
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.
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.
