Shabbat at Hillel at UGA is a wonderful way to wind down from the week. We begin with spiritual services led by our wonderful students at 6pm followed by our homemade dinners at 7pm. We have a different meal theme every week, and the food is always delicious! While the majority of attendees are Jewish, other students are welcome to come and experience the traditions surrounding a Hillel Shabbat. With our Shabbats, you can feel free to come with whomever you want, whenever you want, wearing whatever you want!
Hillel observes all major Jewish holidays. From High Holiday services and eating in our sukkah to lighting the hanukiah on Hanukkah and singing the four questions at Passover, Hillel at UGA does it all!
Hillel leads trips to Israel for Birthright Israel in December and in May. Our students are able to experience Israel with their fellow UGA peers and then come back to campus and share that experience with others. UGA also offers opportunities to get involved with Israel advocacy on campus with many pro-Israel groups.
