Celebrate the High Holidays at Elon 

Jewish students at Elon University have the opportunity to celebrate the High Holidays together, free of charge, in a welcoming environment. We come together over delicious shared meals that allow our community to share family traditions and invent new ones. 

We offer prayer services that represent the vibrant spectrum of Judaism on our campus, and Jewish students at Elon observe and celebrate together.

All meals and services are free of charge for students, and open to the entire community.
