SHABBAM Host Sign-Up

On November 12, host a Shabbat meal for a small group and have big fun! We’re here to make your SHABBAM amazing with inspiration, a pre-SHABBAM trainings, and food! Thanks to generous Maryland Hillel donors, you can have a prepared meal from our dining hall or cook/order your own dinner and receive reimbursement of up to $6 per person for current UMD students. All hosts will receive challah, grape juice, and other key ingredients to pull off a Shabbat dinner! Note: Registration is closed to those that would need food catered by Hillel. Registration is open through November 5 for those cooking their own meal. For more questions, email Dawn.
