Tonight, KU Hillel will host its 14th annual Rock Chalk Shabbat. Rock Chalk Shabbat brings together more than 550 students, parents, alumni, and community members for a unique Shabbat experience to highlight the significance of Jewish life on the University of Kansas’s campus.
Originally called Shabbat 150, named for the goal of bringing 150 people together for a Shabbat dinner, Rock Chalk Shabbat has become a much larger-scale event with its message reaching even more people.
Rock Chalk Shabbat will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Kansas Union with the brothers of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity serving hors d’oeuvres, followed by student-led services at 6:30 p.m. After services, there will be a Shabbat dinner starting at 8 p.m., served by the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity brothers. Students, parents, alumni and community members are encouraged to attend Rock Chalk Shabbat and see all KU Hillel has to offer—there is plenty of open seating available.
The Jewish Heritage Foundation of Greater Kansas City has generously underwritten Rock Chalk Shabbat. For more information about Rock Chalk Shabbat, please contact Amy Sandler at Amy@Kuhillel.org or 785-749-5397.
