Spring, Summer, and Fall 2020

During the coronavirus pandemic, we are meeting virtually for Shabbat.

To get notifications about upcoming services, both in ASL and interpreted into ASL, follow Hillel at Gallaudet on Facebook. Questions about ASL Shabbat services? Email ASLShabbatCoalition [at] gmail.com.

The ASL Shabbat Coalition is a partnership among Hillel at Gallaudet, Washington Society for Jewish Deaf, Jewish Deaf Congress, and the Jewish Deaf Resource Center. The Coalition offers remote Shabbat services for our Jewish Deaf community.


Fall 2019

Feeling overwhelmed with school, work, and life? We’ve got your back (and your bagels).

Join us for Shabbat dinners bi-weekly (with some exceptions for holidays) at the Living and Learning Residence Hall 6 dorm, typically from 6:30PM to 9PM. We’re set up in the Co-Lab. Students, staff, and community members are all welcome! Please RSVP in advance by emailing hello@gallaudethillel.org.

What can you expect from our dinners? We say a blessing over our “wine” (grape juice) and challah, then we mix and mingle with our catering from Moti’s Market. Kosher and vegetarian options are provided. We’re a mix of religious and secular, so don’t worry about fitting in; you’ll find your people among us.

If you need any accommodations (dietary, accessibility, etc) please contact us at hello@gallaudethillel.org!

SHABBAT DINNER DATES, 2019: Sept 13, Oct 11, Nov 1, Nov 15, Dec 6

** While attendance is free for students and staff, we ask that community visitors provide a donation of whatever amount feels fair. We are a non-profit organization and need support to keep giving back to our community! **
