On Tuesdays at Sarah Lawrence and Wednesdays at Purchase College...

Kashruth and Holiday Celebrations at Hillel

Hillels of Westchester is driven to empower students to explore and own their Jewish Identity. This means that our Shabbat and Holiday programs are driven by our students and enhanced by the professional staff. There are experiencal Friday night services and kosher food on all of our campuses at least once a month. At Purchase College and Sarah Lawerence College occurs about twice a month. All are welcome to these celebrations. On average, 15 students attend depending on the collaberation and theme. 

When it comes to holdiays we go all out with a sukkah and chanukah candlelighting on each campus, passover and Tu B'Shvat Sedarim for the campuses that are in session, Purim parties and more. For the High Holidays we host meals and educational experiences and offer home hospitality and services through Anywhere in Westchester, our program that links students with the local synagogues and Jewish community. Every year we add to our holiday repertoire based on student's desires, needs, and timing. 

For kosher food you are specially order meals at Pace University and there is a small prepared section at Sarah Lawrence College. We make sure to provide Kosher food at all our events. There currently has not been a large enough push for Kosher food on campus but the adminstration is open when there is a critical mass, so please contact us if this is an issue.
