We’re back from a 10-day roadtrip down and up the I-95 to a family wedding in Florida and a family getaway in the process. We took 1000+ photos, enjoyed many sights and stops, beaches and museums, visited with alumni and made many memories.

We have Opening Shabbat planned (walking groups from State and Indian Quad Archways), a Brunch on Sunday and a Welcome Firepit that evening! The new Kosher Dining opens on Monday at Indian Quad. Check it out, and look into signing up for its meal plan options.

We had 3 alumni reunions this July, in Long Island, NJ and NYC. All in all we got to see close to 100 alumni at these events, plus alumni who visited for Cozy Shabbat weekends or stopped by to say hello, or those we met up with along the way.

We also met some really nice incoming freshmen and we look forward to welcoming many more into our campus community, starting with freshmen weekend/move-in Shabbat and the welcome (back) firepit on the first Sunday night…

These last few weeks of summer we’re doing some small upgrades at Shabbos House and putting in a lot of time to catching up on paperwork and backend office work – plus planning for the new semester. So much to do, so little time!

We also look forward to two family weddings this August. So its going to be a busy and exciting time.

Here’s our schedule of Cozy-Shabbat summer weekends and summer events. We’re doing all the weekends of July and the start and end of August. Alumni and students are welcome to join us, some travelers come, too.

Planning now for the Fall semester! The holidays fall much later than usual, and there’s no Chanukah or Purim on campus this year. But we have lots in store! Stay tuned…

See this Facebook album for 100+ photos of our Grad Party farewell to the Class of 2016. We’re going to miss you! (aside for those staying on for grad school at UAlbany).
