Kosher Dining

Shabbat Dinners: all meals are dairy or pareve. Pesach: all meals are Kosher for Passover. While we do not have kosher facilities on campus, arrangements can be made with the dining hall for kosher chicken to be cooked on disposable pans several times a week.

Religious Services

Our services are egalitarian, inclusive, and open to all! Though we don't hold Shabbat morning services on campus, arrangements can be made to attend a local Reform or Conservative synagogue.
