What is the Shabbat Dinner Experience?

Shabbat Dinner Experience is a great opportunity to acclimate both students and their families to the Cornell Hillel community.  The night of freshmen move in, over 230 students and family members join together to celebrate Shabbat.  This traditional dinner is enhanced by an awesome a cappella performance and a thought-provoking d'var torah. You do not want to miss out on the biggest Shabbat dinner of the year!


The Shabbat Dinner Experience takes place the evening of Friday, August 18th.
