High Holiday.png

Already excited to spend the High Holidays with Illini Hillel?! Great, because we are ready and excited to spend them with YOU!


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 are excited that services, meals, and holiday programming will be held in person, primarily at the Hillel Building. 

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.
