The students of Central Florida Hillel collaborate with staff to create vibrant, pluralistic, and engaging Shabbat experiences throughout the school year.

Every Friday night that classes are in session, students are invited to join their Jewish community at Central Florida Hillel for a kosher catered meal and family-like experience. The evening includes Shabbat appetizers and schmoozing, an egalitarian student-led Shabbat service as well as a traditional option led by Yisrael Abisror and a delicious family-style dinner. If you are looking for a way to start the weekend with a great group of Jewish friends, don’t miss out! Services start each week at 6:30 PM and dinner follows.

We are so excited to be able to continue to offer weekly Shabbat options to our students in a socially distanced and safe manner. Students are required to register in advance for shabbat each week on our main page. Scroll down to upcoming events to find each Shabbat.
The schedule is as follows: 

  • 5:45 Traditional Minyan led by Rabbi Abisror

  • 6:00 Egalitarian Minyan led by a student

  • 6:45 Post minyan Shabbat schmoozing

  • 7:30 PM: Shabbat dinner


This year, we are offering students the option to sit in person, outside and socially distanced, or to pick up a pre-packaged shabbat dinner in a box. 

  • Pre-order your shabbat dinner for pick-up 

    • Pick-up your food from 5:30-6:30 PM on Friday from Parking Lot Tent

  • Pre-order your in person shabbat meal

    • Join us at 7:00 PM in the side lot next to Northview for an outdoor shabbat dinner. 

Hillel has free parking in the outdoor parking lot next to the building. First come first serve.
