Shabbat

Shabbat

Almost every Friday night, students, staff and community members are welcome at Hillel for Shabbat services and dinner. We have an ongoing traditional-Egalitarian minyan (prayer group). If you would like to lead one of them, or contribute to a service by leading a text study or offering a D’var Torah (word of Torah) contact our Assistant Director, Andrew Max at Andrew@uschillel.org.

Check the Calendar or News for Jews (the weekly e-letter) for Shabbat themes throughout the semester.


Shabbat In A Box

About once a month, there is no Shabbat dinner at Hillel. Instead, students have the opportunity to make and share their own Shabbat dinner with old and new friends! Simply contact Andrew at Andrew@uschillel.org by the Wednesday before the “Shabbat in a Box” Shabbat with at least 3 other students’ names whom you’ve confirmed will share in your Shabbat meal with you, then pick up a “Shabbat in a Box” box on Friday from 10am-3pm. The box will include challot and grape juice for kiddush (blessing Shabbat), a blessing sheet and words of Torah from the weekly parsha (Torah portion), and a $20 gift card to Ralph’s to go towards groceries for your meal.  View our Shabbat in a Box video which one 2nd place in the 2011 Jewlicious Festival Video Award competition:
