Our students are eager to host their UAlbany faculty members for a Shabbat Dinner! Friday November 4th is the date, dinner is at 8pm, at Shabbos House Rohr Chabad Jewish Student Center, at 320 Fuller Road.

Professors & Faculty! If you are interested in coming, please fill out the short form below. You and yours are very welcome!

What to expect? Shabbos House has usually anywhere between 100-160 students on a Friday Night, no reserved seating. Traditional services precede at 7pm, dinner begins at 8pm. There are several courses served and it all begins with a few Shabbat welcome songs, the Kiddush over grapejuice and Hamotzee on Challah. The food is all home-prepared by Raizy and a team of students, see form below for any food concerns) Usually Rabbi Mendel shares a story or insight (see “Mendel’s Messages“), but being a faculty Shabbat, we hope to involve faculty in some type of individual or group interaction – stay tuned as our students work to finalize that. Dinner is usually over by 9/9:30pm but some students linger on afterwards.

Re Parking: There is very limited parking at Shabbos House and we try to keep side street parking to a minimum. Please, it would be best if you parked in the Dutch Student Gold Lot closest to Shabbos House and walked the short distance over.
