Cornell University is having an upcoming shabbaton for prospective students on September 16-17th, 2016. In addition to its world-class academic and intellectual environment, Cornell University also features a fantastic Orthodox Jewish community, which is able to provide for the religious and social needs of Jewish students. The Center for Jewish Living is an entirely student-run organization comprised of a residence hall and a programming board dedicated to running campus-wide religious, social and cultural events. The CJL is a warm and inviting community that has already become a home away from home for countless students.
Hot kosher food (with OU supervision) is provided at two different dining locations on campus daily, there are three daily minyanim, and a JLIC (Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus) Rabbinic Couple are all available as resources to observant students.
We would like to invite all prospective students to visit Cornell for a shabbaton and see it all for themselves. The shabbaton will feature a Shabbat dinner with over 150-250 students as well as other programming throughout the weekend. The weekend will be a great opportunity for students to tour Cornell’s campus, experience a typical shabbat, and talk with current Cornellians about all facets of the Cornell experience—academic, social, and religious. See Ms. Greener or Mrs. Yunger if you would like register for the shabbaton. SPACE IS LIMITED so students who would like to come along on the shabbaton are encouraged to to register as soon as possible. (Registration does not 100% guarantee a spot on the shabbaton.)
