Shana Tovah Illini! Check out our full schedule of meals and services for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot at the University of Illinois.
We will be holding Orthodox services in person for up to 50 people (masks required) in an outdoor space.
Conservative services will be held both in person (masks required) outdoors and also via Zoom. Both options require registration. Reform services will be held online.
Rosh Hashanah meals are free to our students, thanks to a generous endowment gift made by Firouz and Nasrin Gahvari in memory of their son, Hormozd. Hormozd was an active student and graduate student at Illini Hillel for many years. He passed away at a young age on the eve of Rosh Hashana in 2016, after a long battle with Ewing Sarcoma. This meaningful and unique endowment will allow us to celebrate his life today and in the future.
