Texas Shabbat 500

Shabbat 500 is a Shabbat dinner experience planned by students, for students. We're planning the largest Shabbat dinner ever to hit the UT campus, and we want you there! We aim to strengthen Jewish unity at UT while providing as many Jewish Longhorns as possible with an unbelievable Shabbat dinner experience. There are over 4000 Jewish students at UT, so we've set a goal of 500- but we're aiming for more! Come, bring your friends, and enjoy an evening of meaningful services and incredible food catered by Simcha Kosher Catering. The best part? It's free! If you've never been to a shabbat dinner before, now is the perfect chance. So grab your friends, reserve a table, and RSVP to join us for what is sure to be a night you'll never forget!
We look forward to seeing you!
