Celebrate Shabbat with the Illini Hillel community every Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Join us for Friday night services with one of our three minyanim, a free cRc kosher Shabbat dinner, a free Saturday lunch and meet a new group of Jewish friends on campus.

From Cubs Shabbat to Comedy Shabbat, Shabbat is an exciting experience every week. Join us for weekly services, dinner or both and feel free to wear whatever you choose. See below for this semester's themes!

Our free Shabbat dinners are generously sponsored by the Takiff Family Foundation and the First Bank of Highland Park Foundation.
