Shabbat at Elon University


Students at Elon have the opportunity to welcome Shabbat in a variety of ways that build community and celebrate the dynamic diversity of Jewish traditions. 

Hillel offers student-led Kabbalat Shabbat, featuring a blend of music, meditation, & meaning that is student-led and staff-supported.

Students can enjoy a delicious meal complete with challah, candles, kiddush, singing, and the traditional beauty of the sabbath, a fun and funky southern fried chicken dinner with a special North Carolina flavor, or just a casual gathering in a dorm room with food and friends. 

For a complete Shabbat schedule visit the Elon Hillel calendar.


Students gather at the home of one of our staff members to welcome Shabbat in a home environment.
