***2015-2016*** All investments made to Central Florida Hillel for our Shabbat program will be matched 100% by a private foundation. E-mail Sam Friedman, Director of Community Relations for more information!
Nothing says ‘family’ like a nice, warm Shabbat dinner. Many of our students are far from home, for the first time, but a warm Shabbat dinner with other Jewish college students can shorten that distance considerably.
Students do not pay for Shabbat dinner at Central Florida Hillel.
So who does? Thanks to the generous support of our community, alumni and parents (and grandparents!), CFH is able to provide Shabbat dinners to Central Florida area college students at no cost to the student. Knowing that many college students would not be able to pay for a Friday night dinner experience, the Orlando Jewish community, in partnership with parents and alumni across the state, chose to ensure all Shabbat related experiences will be provided at no charge. It is simply too important to be limited by budgetary restraints.
To help defray the cost of Shabbat dinners, please consider making an investment in CFH so that your child, and the child of a parent who is unable to support Central Florida Hillel, can continue to experience this essential tradition of our Jewish heritage at no cost.
