What is Shabbat 200?A Kiddush cup, over which prayers sanctifying Shabbat are said.

This event empowers the students to re

ach out and bring their friends--as their personal guests--to this program. Shabbat 200 has proven to be a potent catalyst for invigorating Jewish life on campus; it has served as a portal to the Jewish campus community for thousands of students who were previously uninvolved in a discussion that stretches across three millennia.

The Shabbat 200 program will include:

  • A mouth-watering four-course Kosher meal;
  • Spirited, enchanting melodies; and
  • Quality entertainment. 

Registration info will be posted here when it becomes available.

About Shabbat

Shabbat (Hebrew for Sabbath) is one of the best known of all Jewish observances. In Judaism, Shabbat signifies a day of rest and spiritual enrichment.

Traditionally, the beginning of Shabbat is marked by the lighting of candles eighteen minutes before sunset on Friday afternoon.  Families then attend a brief evening service and then a festive, leisurely meal.

Traditional foods include challah, a sweet, eggy bread shaped in a braid and cholent, a slowly cooked stew.  Shabbat continues into Saturday during which services are held, Kiddush (a prayer over wine sanctifying Shabbat) is said, and another festive meal takes place. The observance ends at nightfall, when three stars are visible, approximately 40 minutes after sunset.

Shabbat dinner is a project of the Chabad Jewish Student Organization.
