Pray, sing, study, reflect, and reconnect with Hillel UW this High Holiday season.
For the safety and well-being of our community, we are limiting the number of services we are offering this year (creating a thoughtful combination of our traditional and liberal services) as well as the number of seats. We ask that you be fully vaccinated before entering the Hillel building. All services will be live-streamed; if you have not been vaccinated we invite you to choose our live-stream option.
All of our services this year will be led by Jason Kintzer and our Senior Jewish Educator, Rabbi Lauren Kurland. Learn more about our service leaders here. The Erev Rosh Hashanah sermon will be given by Amee Huppin Sherer, Hillel UW’s Greenstein Family Executive Director and the Kol Nidre sermon will be given by Terri Green, Hillel UW’s Director of Advancement.
We will have an Erev Rosh Hashanah dinner immediately following Rosh Hashanah services on September 5th for students and Jconnectors (20 & 30-somethings) only. Dinners will be prepared in individual to-go boxes, so you can choose to take them home, or stay and enjoy your meal with us at tables set up outside in our Sukkah court. Click here to learn more, see the menu, or to RSVP.
We rely on generous community support to offer High Holiday services and our other meaningful and innovative programs throughout the year. Hillel is pleased to provide High Holiday services and programs at no cost to students. The actual cost is about $72 per student.
Become a 2021/5782 Hillel UW Shofar Sponsor
Sponsors are needed this year as our income from High Holiday Service ticket sales will be limited due to COVID safety precautions, and we will incur the added costs of providing livestream access to our services. Additionally, as half of our students – first years and sophomores – have never experienced college in person, we anticipate twice the number of new students to attend this year’s Welcome to Hillel Sukkot Party, Welcome Back BBQ, and our annual Fall Retreat. Please consider supporting Hillel UW as a 2021/5782 Shofar Sponsor.
Sponsorships include up to 4 tickets to all Hillel UW High Holiday in-person services as well as live-stream access to all services.
