Celebrate Shabbat with us!

At the end of a long week filled with classes, assignments and exams, the Kraft Center is a great place to spend Shabbat.

Our community is proud to offer three communal Shabbat dinners, in addition to the many meals our students host in their suites.

Hewitt Shabbat Dinner (and lunch!): Our Shabbat Meals Committee (SMC) offers Shabbat dinners, lunches, and a weekly seudah shlishit (third meal), known for traditional ritual and spirited singing. Students are asked to sign up for Hewitt meals by dinner time on Thursdays by reserving a ticket at Hewitt Dining Hall.

Kraft Shabbat DinnerKraft Shabbat Dinners take place weekly and are open to the entire community. Kraft Dinners attract a range of students, from those who celebrate Shabbat on a regular basis to those who are just looking for a nice Shabbat meal every once in awhile – all are welcome! Walk ins are welcome but signing up is encouraged so that we have enough food. Dinner is free and students can register by clicking here.

Kesher Shabbat Dinner: Kesher, our Reform community, offers a free, vegetarian Shabbat dinner every week! This small community is proud of its tradition of l’chaims, where everyone shares the best part of their week. No need to sign up – just come!
