Widely popular among students, KU Hillel’s first Midnight Oneg was a huge hit, filling the entire KU Hillel building with more than 50 students. Sophomore Hannah Feldman from Atlanta went to see friends she might not get a chance to see during the week.
“Midnight Oneg was a lot of fun because there was music and I got to see people I wouldn't normally see at Hillel but just wanted to stop in and say hi on a Friday night,” Feldman said.
Feldman plans to attend upcoming Midnight Oneg events, and said the event encouraged her to go to other events at KU Hillel.
“It was a lot of fun and a nice break from the normal routine of the weekend,” Feldman said.
Marlena Geller, a junior from Denver, is one of the students who helped plan KU Hillel’s Shabbat Midnight Oneg.
“Midnight Oneg is a really awesome program,” Geller said. “I thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone there having a blast on Shabbat.”
Geller is excited to continue the program given its successful first session. “I think the turnout was great in addition to the great music, food, and drinks. I’m excited for the next one,” Geller said.
