High Holy Days

Oberlin Hillel offers annual student led high holy day services including:

-Erev Rosh Hashanah 

-Both days of Rosh Hashanah 

-Kol Nidre

-Yom Kippur (including break fast) 

-A Sukkah for the Sukkot celebrations 

Services for Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah are held in the main space of the Wilder building. The material comes from a wide breadth of different traditions including torah readings, folk songs and traditional prayer services. The college and conservatory give the entire school a day off during Yom Kippur.

With the help of Kosher Halal Co-op, Oberlin Hillel builds a Sukkah to celebrate Sukkot. Hillel sponsors special events under the Sukkah and welcomes all students to eat under the sukkah during the week.
