High Holiday Information and Meal Reservations

Holiday Meals with Bama Hillel

While we are not certain what social distancing and safety precautions may be in effect mid-September, planning a meaningful holiday experience for our students is very important to us. Below, you will find options to celebrate virtually with Hillels across the world as well as local Alabama synagogues. Holiday meals will be provided for Erev Rosh Hashana, Erev Yom Kippur, and the Break Fast. We anticipate that these will be pick up. We will make small group seating options available if possible.

Would you like to help support our High Holidays?
Even though our holiday celebrations may be virtual, we are very excited to be there for our students (even if it’s just a passing glimpse behind a mask). We have worked hard to include special holiday meals for our Hillel Family and hope you will help us continue the tradition. Please consider a donation of $180 to support 10 students this Rosh Hashanah. Donations can be made on our homepage at or by contacting Lisa at for other arrangements. Thank you and L’Shana Tova!
