Shabbat is a highlight at Hillel each week. Students from all five of our campuses, recent alumni, and young adults from the community gather at Hillel for a Jewish connection and a free meal.
Community members volunteer to cook Shabbat Dinners for the students almost every week and we are very thankful for that. However, we do not have cooks for every Shabbat. Your generous gift will enable us to provide a Shabbat meal for the students on the Fridays where we have no cooks.
Funding will enable us to bring in high level programs that engage and inspire the students to connect with Hillel and the concept of Shabbat celebration. It will also fund delicious catered meals from one of the two kosher restaurants in the area or a local kosher caterer. Programming will focus on the three main areas of the initiative’s strategies: promoting Jewish arts and culture, advancing Jewish knowledge, ideas, and values, and strengthening global Jewish community.
