About

 


On February 6th, 2015, 2,000 New York University students, alumni, parents, and friends will come together for a Shabbat dinner at Coles Sports Center. Shabbat for 2000 (S2K) offers members of NYU’s diverse community the opportunity to share in a Shabbat experience. Shabbat for 2000 is the largest student-run event at NYU and the largest Jewish student event in the country.


This event is sponsored by both the Edgar M. Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life and Hillel at NYU. The students of Hillel at NYU organize, plan, and execute the event. Meet our student team here.

+ History of Shabbat for 2000

In 1999, the last year of the millennium, a few NYU students along with Rabbi Eli Cohen launched Shabbat for 1000. Housed in the Puck Building, 650 NYU students, faculty, friends, and alumni broke bread for the landmark Shabbat dinner. As attendance continued to rise, eventually surpassing the 1000 mark, expansion was necessary.

In 2007, Shabbat for 2000 was established, simultaneously becoming the largest student-run event at NYU. In 2011, Shabbat for 2000 relocated to the Coles Sports and Recreation Center, in the heart of NYU’s campus. Consistently reaching the 2000 registration mark each year, Shabbat for 2000 serves both the Jewish and broader NYU communities. Shabbat for 2000 is the largest Jewish student-run event in the country and has become a signature NYU event.

+ Why Shabbat for 2000

  • To showcase and bring together the diversity that makes up the Jewish student body at NYU, reflecting the pluralism our community maintains throughout the year
  • To develop and empower student leaders
  • To share a Shabbat experience with the broader NYU community

Social Action

Tikkun Olam

 

"Tikkun Olam" or the notion “of healing the world” exemplifies the importance of giving back and acting towards others, and as city dwellers we see so many people who have fallen on hard times and are in need.

The Shabbat for 2000 Social Action Committee is extremely excited for the community service component of this year's event! 2,000 challah rolls are being graciously donated and will be distributed to various soup kitchens and homeless shelters in the week leading up to Shabbat for 2000.

We invite students, leaders, and the NYU community at large to join us on these trips and have the opportunity to engage with people in need in our local community.
