Yes, UAlbany is no longer closed for the High Holidays, but students can be excused to either go home to celebrate with family or celebrate by attending holiday meals and/or prayer services here at UAlbany. For many years now Shabbos House has full holiday services and meals and now that classes remain in session we’ll do it even better. If you need letters for professors or have other questions, please be in touch with us.

See the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Schedules for High Holidays 5780 / 2019 below. All at Shabbos House unless otherwise noted.
