MEGA Shabbat


On February 28th a record-breaking 594 students and guests came together for MEGA Shabbat — our largest Shabbat dinner of the year.  Roone Arledge Auditorium, located in the center of campus, overflowed with students from countless different communities hosting tables for their peers. We were joined by many special guests including Dean Valentini of Columbia College, President Beilock of Barnard College, and Dean Rosen-Metsch of General Studies. Additionally, Robert Kraft joined us for opening remarks about the significance of MEGA Shabbat and vibrant Jewish life on campus. After the main event in Roone Auditorium, hundreds of students returned to the Kraft Center for post-dinner receptions including an LGBTQ+ reception, a first-year reception, a Senior Toast, and an improv show.
