Shabbat


Every Friday night, students are invited to join Hillel for a festive Shabbat service and dinner. Traditionally, students can enjoy a Shabbat meal at the Pasquerilla Center.  Even though we are not able to provide a community Shabbat meal this semester due to COVID-19, we are still dedicated to providing a meaningful Shabbat experience for Penn State Jewish students.  This semester, we will offer Shabbox: a kosher-style (kosher upon request) Shabbat meal and kits containing the necessities for Shabbat ritual.   Pick up your pre-ordered Shabbox in the Redifer Commons parking lot 4-5:00 PM on Fridays! Pickup will be contactless. Please wear your mask! Virtual services are led by our Ruach (spiritual) interns. All Shabbat meals are no fee for our students thanks to the support of our generous alumni, parents, and friends.
