Over 500 people gathered at Norris University Center on Friday night for NU Hillel’s fourth annual MegaShabbat.
The event, co-sponsored by Alpha Epsilon Pi and the Office of University Chaplains, was held in Norris for the first time instead of the Allison Residential Community dining hall.
Both Jewish and non-Jewish participants took part in opening ceremonies and prayers that preceded the dinner, which took place in the ground floor of the building. The co-chairs, Weinberg senior Arielle Cooper and Weinberg sophomore Sammi Roth, welcomed attendees to the event and shared each of their favorite memories of Shabbat. Rabbi Aaron Potek then led songs and blessings before dinner was served.
