Days of Awe(some)


We have a full compliment of High Holiday services to choose from. So that we can be prepared, sign up for services and register for meals.

Whatever you’re searching for this High Holy Day season, we got you covered. Want to wake up for restorative yoga, go to a service to hear the Torah reading and Shofar blast at a Conservative, Orthodox, or Reform services, and round out your day with the Meditation and Mindfulness Service? Check. Want to engage in a meaningful discussion about contemporary and relevant issues while meeting new friends, then zen out on a nature walk on campus? We can do that too. We’re here to help you find a place, your place, where your mind, heart, and soul feel nourished and at home. And don’t forget to tell your bubbe, she’ll kvell knowing you went to High Holy Day services on campus!

If you need a High Holiday exemption letter for your professors, submit this form. You should make appropriate arrangements with your professors, prior to missing class. Please allow 3-5 days for letter requests to be processed and printed. The exemption letters may 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 for tickets in advance 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.
