Shabbat & Holidays

At Stony Brook Hillel, Shabbat is a meaningful and festive experience of togetherness. 

Shabbat Services:

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, we have an additional Friday evening service or alternative program.



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:

Israel Shabbat

Shabbat 180

Persian Shabbat


Students are encouraged to register for each Shabbaton to make sure we have the correct amount of food and minimize food waste.

Register for the next Shabbaton HERE!

Shabbaton meals are FREE for students thanks to the generosity of Hillel Supporters. Help keep Shabbatons free for Stony Brook Students.
