Mega Shabbat

It gets bigger and bigger each year! Mega Shabbat is the largest Shabbat dinner at The University of Guelph! With the goal to bring ever increasing numbers of Jews together for an unforgettable Shabbat dinner in a heated tent on the Chabad House front lawn, Mega Shabbat is an absolute highlight of every Jewish Gryphons year.

Mega Shabbat debuted in 2014 with Shabbat 100. Just three years later that number doubled to Shabbat 200! Over 200 excited students and faculty came together to experience the greatest of great Shabbat dinners.

What number will this year be? Will you be there to experience history?
