Shabbat at the Hillel SV house is every Friday night when school is in session. Students from our five campuses gather for a Kosher, home-made Shabbat  dinner on Fridays at 7pm. Once a month, we have services that begin at 6:15 PM prior to dinner.                                      

Jewish Holiday Celebrations!

Hillel is your community away from home. We celebrate Jewish and Israeli holidays with all the excitement, education, and fun we can muster! From Rosh Hashanah seders to Yom HaAtzmaut celebrations, we shine the light of Judaism ever brighter! For some it is a continuation of their family traditions, for others it is a new experience! See facebook for upcoming festivities.
