What events are taking place at Harvard Hillel during Reunion?

Harvard Hillel will host three events for Reunion attendees this spring: a Graduating Senior & Alumni Brunch on May 24, Alumni Shabbat on May 26, and an Ice Cream Social & Cocktail Hour on May 27. Any and all alumni who are in Cambridge for their Reunion are welcome to come, but registration is requested for each event. 

How do I sign up for Harvard Hillel's Reunion events?

You can find links to register for each of our Reunion events on this page. If you have questions about the registration process for any of our events, please contact Jessica Axel.

Where will the events take place?

All of Harvard Hillel's Reunion events will take place at our building, Rosovsky Hall. The address is:

52 Mt. Auburn St.
Cambridge, MA 02138

 

How much does each event cost?

There is no cost for the Graduating Senior & Alumni brunch on May 24 or the Ice Cream Social & Cocktail Hour on May 27. However, we ask that you please RSVP so we know how much food and ice cream (and cocktail ingredients!) to get.

Alumni Shabbat Dinner on May 26 is $18 for an individual and $90 for a family. The link to purchase your tickets can be found here. If you need to purchase more than one ticket but do not wish to get a ticket at the family rate, we ask that you purchase as many individual tickets as you want.

Can I bring my children/family members?

Yes! In particular, the Ice Cream Social & Cocktail Hour on May 27 is a favorite of families with children, but we welcome your children and family to all of our Reunion events. When you register for an event, please RSVP for each person in your party (unless you are buying a family ticket for Alumni Shabbat on May 26, in which case you should only purchase one ticket). This gives us a better idea of how many people we should expect.

What are the service options for the Shabbat during Reunion?

Harvard Hillel's Orthodox Minyan will be hosting services on Friday evening, May 26. Services are scheduled to begin around 7:00 p.m., but you should check our calendar as we get closer to be sure. Shabbat dinner will begin at 7:45 p.m. on May 26.

The Orthodox Minyan and the Worship & Study egalitarian minyan will be hosting Shabbat services on Saturday morning, May 27. Orthodox services will begin at 9:00 a.m. and Worship & Study services will begin at 9:30.

All services will take place at Rosovsky Hall.
