Shabbat

“Six days a week we wrestle with the world, wringing profit from the earth; the Sabbath we especially care for the seed of eternity planted in the soul.” (Abraham Joshua Heschel)

Join us for Shabbat at Hillel, and celebrate Shabbat in community with prayer, great food, and compelling programming. Our Shabbat Committee helps shape the Shabbat experience for students, and works on programming with student groups that host Shabbat each week. Questions? Be in touch! [email protected].

After-Dinner

After Shabbat dinner we typically have Friday Night Learning in the lounge (led by students, Rav Lisa and Hillel staff, or a visiting teacher), an Oneg (desserts at a students’ home) and/or a Tisch (singing, hanging out, and more desserts at Hillel).

Saturday

Orthodox services meet weekly and an egalitarian service meets monthly — both at 9:30 am. Check the calendar for Shabbat-friendly day time programming like visits to the museum and

In the afternoon you can come back for services, seudah shlishit (the 3rd Shabbat meal) and Havdallah at the conclusion of Shabbat.

Hillel also occasionally hosts Shabbat lunch for students and community members.

This is a story that really delves deep into the Rabbinic understanding of tradition, and of innovation, and we’ll attempt to study this story and understand how it relates to the Rabbis, and to us in 2016. All sources will be in the original and in English, and no prior text experience is necessary. RSVP to Rav Lisa by Wednesday

    Join JWF as we watch “The Body Monologues” as a group and debrief the experience afterwards over drinks at Espresso! “The Body Monologues” provides a platform for members of the UM community to share their diverse experiences surrounding body image, embodiment, and acceptance in the face of messages that tell us our worth is tied to our ability to fit the impossible ideals of beauty, ability, race, gender, age, and more. This event is open to all identities in the hopes that it will help those who have never dealt with body pressures to learn about how these issues so deeply affect their peers (who are so often disproportionately female, trans, and/or not white) while providing a safe space for those who have experienced such pressures.

    When: Meet Alex Rosenbaum in front of the theatre between 6:30 p.m.-6:45 p.m. so we can find seats together as a group!

    Where: Michigan League (PLEASE message Annie Jacobson if you have no idea where this building is for awesome walking and/or bus directions)

Come and bring your friends to help us build a stronger Jewish Greek community on campus while enjoying some yummy bagels! Since it’s not a game day, we wanted to give everyone the opportunity to mingle, chat, and eat some bagels on their relaxing weekend after you all get the chance to sleep in!

    Michigan Hillel Building

    Join us for a lunch and learn with Jacob Siegel, our scholar-in-residence, on the topic of the Kosher Meat Industry

    In this session, we will explore some controversies surrounding kosher slaughter from a Jewish lens. We’ll use traditional sources to engage with questions like: can/should kashrut be ‘activist’ in its certification? How can Jews balance caring about the kosher status of their food with caring about other Jewish values, like humane treatment of animals?

  • Friday Night Program: “Jews, Food, and Justice”

    October 23rd, 2015 (8:30 pm - 9:30 pm)
    Michigan Hillel Building

    Hosted by Hayerukim!

    After Shabbat dinner, join us in the lounge for a compelling session with guest scholar Jacob Siegel, an environmental educator, shochet (certified in kosher slaughter) and Rabbinical student to explore the question, “How should we eat?”

    This question in our culture can be deeply confusing. There are many overlapping and competing moral standards – vegetarian or vegan, local and organic, free-range and pasture-fed, and more. Beyond that, what’s my responsibility to those around me who are hungry? In my community? In the world?

    In this conversation, we will use a Jewish and spiritual lens to explore these questions, drawing on the wisdom and grappling of the ancient rabbis to frame our choices today.

    All are welcome!

    Below is description of the film per their website:

    “Miss Israel Linor Abargil was abducted, stabbed, and raped in Milan, Italy, at age 18. She had to represent her country in the Miss World competition only six weeks later. When to her shock she was crowned the winner, she vowed to do something about rape. The film follows her from the rape, to her crowning and through her crusade to fight for justice and break the silence. During her travels to speak out and meet with other rape victims, her own trauma begins to resurface. Her serial rapist becomes eligible for parole, and she has to hunt down his previous victims in order to help keep him behind bars. The film explores the trauma of sexual assault through one young woman’s journey from teenage rape victim to Miss World to empowered lawyer and activist.”

    We hope to see you all there to witness this incredible story and learn one individual’s journey towards bravery and resilience.

    Backpacking opens and everyone gets to pick classes that speak to them. In order to celebrate, Hillel Professional Network will be hosting the first ever Backpacking Party in . Come to Hillel from 8-9:30pm for good company, tasty snacks, and a schedule you can take a screenshot of and post to Facebook so everyone can see what you’re taking, even though they don’t really care.

    Maybe you’re looking for an easy A because you didn’t do so hot in Econ. Maybe you’re thinking Hebrew or Jewish studies because, let’s be honest, those classes are chock full of your Hillel friends. Maybe you just want a schedule that let’s you sleep past noon. Or maybe you want a sustainability class to boost your resume because employers love being progressive about that stuff.

    Bring your computer, wear your PJs, or whatever you want to backpack with your friends.

    Happy Backpacking!

  • The Art of Narrative: Stories of the Talmud

    November 7th, 2013 (8:00 pm - 9:00 pm)
    Amer's on Church st.

    The stories we tell ourselves and others are one of the most critical factors in our lives. Stories influence our politics, our social skills, and our personal decisions.

    We think of the Talmud as a work of Jewish law, but the Talmud also records lots of stories. Stories usually raise more questions than answers, and to really understand Jewish values deeply, you need to read the stories of the Talmud.

    Each week we will read a different story with Rabbi Seth. Come along and bring a friend who you think might enjoy the stories and the discussion. English translations of stories provided; no previous Talmud study required.

    Plenty of hot chocolate provided.
