shabbat goes on

Illini Hillel truly persevered throughout the pandemic this year. We were able to creatively and strategically re-think the safe opportunities we provide to our students and find new ways to create strong relationships. Shabbat is one of the many programs we were able to innovate for our community at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

Currently, registration is required for all Shabbat activities, including Curbside Shabbat (individual meal to-go)! Registration is open from Sunday until Wednesday of each week leading up to the coming Shabbat. The curbside process is super easy and safe - we set up a table in our parking lot, students check-in and give us their names, and we simply hand them their Shabbat to-go meal. Shabbat meals are offered Friday's at 7 p.m. and Saturday's at 12 p.m.
