Shabbat is an important time for MIT’s Jews to get together. Students reconnect around dinner time for hors d’oeuvres and conversation, to hear from the student board what to expect in coming weeks, and then enter the Main Dining Room for more food and conversation. Some students mix it up by hosting their own Shabbat meals outside of Hillel, please contact the staff if you are interested and would like help. Often students will continue on together after dinner, whether to a party, a Shabbat Tisch, or a quiet night of playing board games in the Hillel Center.
Shabbat morning features a minyan and Kiddush hosted by the Orthodox community (though of course all are welcome), and then a hot lunch in the main dining room.
September and mid-spring onwards: Conservative and Orthodox Shabbat services will start at 6:30pm with dinner at 7:30pm.
October through mid-spring: Conservative and Orthodox Shabbat services will start at 6:00pm with dinner at 7:00pm.
