Our regular Shabbat dinners are free to students. The relaxed atmosphere and comforting dinner provide an invaluable break from the stress of the week. Shabbat programming also highlights the partnerships between Hillel and other student groups and features speakers like visitors from Israel’s cutting-edge Arava Institute for Environmental Studies.
To raise funds to support these innovative and inspiring shabbats, which cost $500 each, a generous donor will match every $500 gift dollar-for-dollar. Our donor encourages families and groups to come together to sponsor a shabbat. All shabbat donors will be recognized at the meal(s) they underwrite.
