Explore Lester and Jewell Morris Hillel Jewish Student CenterMSU Hillel is a "home away from home" for Jewish students on campus. It's a place for students to come together and have fun socializing in a Jewish environment. Students come to study, enjoy a delicious kosher Shabbat dinner, hangout with friends, celebrate Jewish holidays, participate in various community services events and athletic programs. Shabbat dinner is always free, as well as Sunday brunches, which are offered once a month. MSU Hillel participates in Birthright Israel and Alternative Break trips.
Every week during the academic year, 150 or more students join together at Hillel for student-led services followed by a free dinner. Some students choose to come to services and meals; others may attend only services or only join their friends for a Shabbat meal. Services are at 6pm followed by dinner at 7pm. We gratefully acknowledge the Peter (z'l) and Shirlye (z'l) Helman Shabbat Dinner Fund and the Ryan Rosman (z'l) Leadership Fund for their leadership support of Shabbat Dinners at Hillel.
