There are Shabbat services offered each week at Stony Brook University. The Stony Brook Hebrew Congregation provides services every week for both Friday night and Saturday morning. On Shabbaton weekends, our students lead an Egalitarian service option on Friday night.
Stony Brook Hillel Shabbatons are vibrant and exciting! Students come together to enjoy programs and meals revolving around student developed themes. All students are welcome and encouraged to take part in the planning of Hillel Shabbatons. Some of our most popular themes in the past have been:
Murder Mystery Shabbat
Under the Sea Shabbat
Shabbaton meals are FREE for students thanks to the generosity of Hillel Supporters. Help keep Shabbatons free for Stony Brook Students.
On some non-Shabbaton weekends, our partner organization, AISH often hosts students for Shabbat dinner and lunch. These meals allow students to get a true taste of Shabbat in a Traditional Jewish household.
Students are also encouraged to host their own meals on non- Shabbaton weekends and we provide a subsidy for food as well as a supply of challah and grape juice. Our students love the chance to create the own Shabbat experience for themselves and their peers.
