Shabbat with Friends

Shabbat is the Jewish day of rest. It is a day in which we stop doing and start being. Shabbat is the day that we connect to ourselves and the people in our lives. 

Shabbat is as diverse as Israelis.

Some celebrate with traditional songs, ceremonies, wine and Hallah bread. Others add their own flair.

We, at the Student Union, want every international student to experience the beauty of Shabbat.

In this spirit we are happy to announce the Shabbat with Friends project.

The Project involves meetings over the course of the semester, depends on your availability, dates and meeting frequency wise.

We will make sure to pair you up with the ultimate host.  

Over the course of the semester you’ll have Shabbat dinners with your new friends and their families, we will appreciate your feedback regarding the hosts and the overall experience in the end of each meeting.

The Shabbat with Friends project seeks to introduce international students to the Jewish and Israeli culture in all its colors and stripes.

In addition, the Project strives to inspire deep and lasting friendships between families, students and participants.
