Free Friday Night Shabbat Dinners

Thanks to the generosity of the Smokler family, Hopkins Hillel provides free Shabbat dinners to students every Friday night during the semester.

Due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, all Friday night meals are currently “grab-and-go” only. Please join us at 7pm at Hillel to join together for Kiddush and to pick up your free Shabbat dinner.

YOU MUST REGISTER FOR YOUR FREE GRAB-AND-GO MEAL BY 5PM ON THE SUNDAY PRECEDING THE SHABBAT DINNER; CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.
