Jewish Student Life


Shabbat is a special time on campus, and this year is no exception.

  • For Fall 2020 our signature UR Hillel event was Pop-Up Shabbat, a grab-and-go (and schmooze!) option held outside as long as the weather lasted.
  • For Spring 2021 we look forward to hosting weekly Shabbat Oneg, held indoors on the River Level of the Chapel. Students can stop by and pick-up Shabbat treats to go, socialize, and welcome Shabbat as a community.
  • Friday evening services are being held virtually. Links to participate are provided in the weekly student e-mails. Interested in volunteering to lead? Contact Hannah Pomerantz!
  • Join us for welcome back Havdalah on Saturday, January 30. Time TBD.
  • While we are disappointed we are not able to provide home-cooked communal Shabbat dinners as usual, we are pleased to be partnering with Kosher Dining to offer students a special kosher Shabbat dinner, available for pre-order through our weekly student e-mails.

We know it’s disappointing to not be able to celebrate Shabbat as usual. We are excited to continue to gather and celebrate as a community in these new ways, and we also look forward to returning to in-person services, meals, and more as soon as we’re able.
