Shabbat and Holidays


Erev Shabbat services are led by students for students. Wine, challah, and dinner are served. Services are held in the Ben Schulman Center for Jewish Life, located at the corner of 25th and Vanderbilt Place, just opposite Memorial Gym.

Vanderbilt Hillel is grateful for the support from the Nashville chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women for allowing us to offer Free Shabbat meals to students on Vanderbilt’s campus.

Unless otherwise stated, services are at 5:30 followed by dinner at 6:30.

High Holidays

Hillel holds Reform and Conservative services for both Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur right on campus.
