High Holidays 2018 • 5779

Students

Whatever you’re searching for this Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we have you covered. So that we can be prepared, sign up for services and meals.

Hear the Torah reading and shofar blast at a Conservative, Orthodox, or Reform service. Engage in a meaningful discussion about relevant issues while meeting new friends. Dine with us for holiday meals. We’re here to help you find a place where your mind, heart, and soul feel nourished and at home!

If you need a High Holiday exemption letter, submit this form. You should make appropriate arrangements with your professors, prior to missing class. Please allow 3-5 days for requests to be processed and printed. The letters must be picked up at the Rosenbloom Hillel Center.


Alumni and Community Members

In order to better accommodate you, we ask that all community members register in advance for tickets for services and meals. We feel strongly that any Jewish student, alumni, or community member should be able to experience the High Holidays regardless of their ability to pay. At the same time, we receive no funding from the university, and count on our community to make it happen. Eighty percent of our funding comes from private individuals like you. We need your help! Please consider a making meaningful, tax-deductible gift which can be processed on the registration page.

Parking is limited at the Rosenbloom Hillel Center and will remain on a first-come, first-served basis. For evening parking (Erev Rosh Hashana and Kol Nidre), free parking is available in Lot 1 which is a 5-minute walk from our building.
