Celebrating Shabbat and holidays with Hillel at Virginia Tech offers a unique opportunity to bring together many members of the community. Each Shabbat 50 to 100 students join together for a delicious, free, Friday night meal followed by a reform or conservative service. Holiday celebrations are as varied as the backgrounds of the students, and there is always room for new and different traditions. Hillel has celebrations for all holidays during the year, fostering a warm community atmosphere.
Shabbat at Virginia Tech is a wonderful way to end the week. From themed Shabbat, to guest speakers, every Shabbat is special. Join us on any Shabbat for services, food, friends, and fun, and don’t forget to check the calendar for programs.
Free Friday Dinner- Large gathering of undergraduate and graduate Virginia Tech students. All Friday night meals are free and inclusive. Come and join the fun and community.
