Sponsor a Shabbat Dinner

Shabbat is a highlight at Hillel each week. Students from our five campuses, recent alumni, and young adults from the community gather at Hillel for to celebrate their Jewish connection and and enjoy a meal free of charge. We endeavor to keep all of Hillel’s programs free so as to alleviate any financial barriers to engaging with Jewish life and community.

We are grateful to the many community members who volunteer to cook Shabbat Dinners for the students almost every week. The students always appreciate a home cooked Shabbat meal and we are always looking for Shabbat cooks. Attendance at a typical Shabbat dinner is between 40-50 students.

If you, your Havurah, or synagogue group is interested, please contact our Assistant Director Mitch Reitman at mreitman@hillelsv.org for more information.
