Shabbat and Holidays

Shabbat & Holidays

One of the best-loved experiences students find at Hillel is celebrating Shabbat and Jewish holidays with us.  A typical Shabbat at UCLA might include:

  • Liberal and Orthodox Friday night service options

  • A traditional Shabbat dinner with 200 of your closest friends

  • A Shabbat morning minyan and Torah reading

  • A catered lunch hosted by our OU-JLIC family

  • A third Shabbat meal hosted at the UCLA Bayit


Shabbat Around Westwood

Each quarter, Hillel sponsors students to host their own intimate Shabbat meals with their friends. Challah, grape juice, candles, and whatever else you need to make it Shabbat for you can be provided by Hillel.


We regularly host Shabbaton opportunities for local commuter students to spend Shabbat with us on campus.  For students needing Shabbat-friendly sleeping accommodations, we can provide!
