In an effort to make Shabbat more accessible to students, Hillel is offering a "Shabbat To-Go" program for any UGA student. This subsidized cost can be applied to any meal or celebration of Shabbat as long as it involves Jewish students at UGA. Please submit this form by 12pm on the Wednesday preceding the Shabbat you are hosting. Forms submitted after that time will be deferred until the following week.

Sukkot Festival
-The Hillel Sukkah! Come help us build our annual Sukkah on the front lawn of Hillel! It sure is a sight to see, as we provide one of the only Sukkah' s in Athens!

Yom HaShoah
Hillel and the Jewish Greek houses (AEPi, TEP, and SDT) host an annual Holocaust Commemoration Ceremony. As a group, we remember some of the many millions of children and families who perished during the Holocaust, as we light candles and say a special prayer in their memories. This is one of the most meaningful events Hillel does during the academic year.

Come join us and make some Hamantaschen and NOISE during our purim program! We will read part of the Megilla and have a great time!
