Shabbat Around WashU

How do YOU do Shabbat? 

WashU Hillel is excited for our 4th annual Shabbat Around WashU on November 15th - a university-wide Shabbat celebration. Host a Shabbat dinner for your friends your way, anywhere on or off campus.  

The opportunities are endless – it could be a laid back Shabbat dinner where you and your friends simply come together in your suite to relax after a long week; a social justice Shabbat dinner; an interfaith Shabbat dinner; a Shabbat dinner with your entire fraternity or sorority or your pledge class; a vegan Shabbat dinner; a student group exec board Shabbat dinner; or a picnic Shabbat dinner on Art Hill in Forest Park for you and a special someone!  

Hillel will provide you with the following for your gathering:

  • Grape Juice
  • Challah
  • Candles
  • A Shabbat resource card
  • Choice of: a $5 stipend per person to help you buy or cook dinner (please keep your receipts!) or a catered meal from Kohn's including roasted chicken, potatoes, and green beans*
  • Paper goods / utensils

Hosts will also get a commemorative gift to help you celebrate Shabbat with your guests on November 15th and in the future!  

Sign up by November 8th to host a Shabbat dinner for you and your friends!

You can also sign up to attend a Shabbat dinner if you don't feel like planning or even if you just want to meet some new people!

*Note: The Kohn's Dinner option will come at a cost of $8 per person, and the host will need to make the payment up front then be reimbursed by Hillel.
