Hillel@Stanford Half-Century Shabbat Dinner and Tisch

This is an Archive of a Past Event

Stanford faculty hosts invite you for a delicious Shabbat dinner from Hillel@Stanford’s kosher kitchen! Join students, friends, alumni and community members for a special evening celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hillel@Stanford.

Jewish students have created community at Stanford University since the beginning, coming together to socialize, celebrate, and study. But it wasn’t until 1965 that a full-time Hillel director was hired to help cultivate and facilitate Jewish life on the Stanford campus. Marking this milestone, Hillel’s Half-Century year, 2015-16, celebrates the growth, innovation, and future of Jewish life at one of America’s leading universities.

7:45 pm - Shabbat dinner hosted by Stanford faculty:

  • Edith Gelles, Michael Weiss, Dr. Peter D.L. Stansky, Carol Hutner-Winograd, Terry Winograd and more!

9:00 pm - Late-night tisch*/dessert reception with niggunim led by Craig Taubman

                *tisch is the Yiddish word for table and connotes friends sharing tables to sing, tell jokes and spend time together

All Hillel@Stanford Half-Century anniversary events are generously underwritten in part by grants from the Taube and Koret Foundations. All events are free and open to the public.
