High Holy Days at USC Hillel

USC Hillel wishes you and your family a shanah tovah umetuka, a good and sweet new year!


As we prepare to welcome Jewish Trojans to our home on Hoover for the High Holy Days, we also recognize our responsibility to take every reasonable precaution to reduce the spread of Coronavirus in our community. Judaism informs our value for Pikuach Nefesh (preserving/saving life) above all else. Given the risk associated with the spread of the delta variant and the current trend in case rates locally, USC Hillel's 5782 in-person High Holy Day services and meals will be open only to current USC students, faculty, and staff participating in Trojan Check and subject to USC testing and tracing protocols. We kindly request that all university staff register in advance and contact us with any questions regarding attendance. We are hopeful that we will be able to welcome members of our extended Jewish Trojan Family (alumni, parents, and our Los Angeles community) back to campus for the Holy Days next year. For those seeking other in-person or virtual options for Holy Day observance this fall, we recommend browsing resources offered by the Jewish Federation or contacting your local synagogue.

Sukkot is a weeklong Jewish holiday that comes five days after Yom Kippur. Sukkot celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the miraculous protection G‑d provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt. We celebrate Sukkot by dwelling in a foliage-covered booth, known as a sukkah.
