Let us be your home away from home during the holidays!

Rosh Hashanah

Spending Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year) on campus is a sweet way to start your year on campus.


Join us for Rosh Hashanah dinner, services, and more. We offer a 500 + person Rosh Hashanah dinner in Trillium Dining Hall complete with all our traditional favorites -  brisket, kugel, and of course apples and honey.


Hillel hosts Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox and alternative services, as well as multiple tashlich opportunities on campus throughout the holiday.


Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur is a beautiful day of reflection and communal prayer. Cornell Hillel offers Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox services on campus. 


There is a pre-fast dinner and communal dairy break-fast in 104 West! Kosher Dining Hall.  Students also have the opportunity to host their own break-fasts with Hillel sponsorship.  Contact Maggie Burke ( to join hundreds of other Cornell students in hosting your own break-fast at your Greek house, appartment, or dorm.
