myChabad Shabbat Dinner provides everything students need to host Shabbat dinner on their own and in their space with friends. By everything, we mean three courses, dinnerware, a hotplate, kiddush cup, challah board and cover, silver candle sticks, and a folder with information on how to host a traditional Shabbat dinner.
myChabad Shabbat Dinner is intended for students who otherwise do not generally celebrate Shabbat dinner at either Chabad or Hillel, or students who have a relationship with Chabad as reflected in three areas: Ongoing iLearn participation, gala participation, and showing care through volunteering.
Each myChabad Shabbat Dinner is limited to 12 participants.
“This is such a great idea. It provides for an occasion to gather friends and loved ones on a Friday to observe the Shabbat tradition the way you do at home. I really appreciated the folder with explanations and the flexibility of following the steps we felt comfortable with. It is a wonderful way to welcome not-so-religious people and getting them interested in their religion.”
