More than 500 Students Gather for Shabbat Dinner

With exclamations of “Shabbat Shalom” circling, more than 500 Jewish students gathered to celebrate a traditional dinner together at the University of Georgia.

On Friday evening the Rohr Chabad House, one of the Jewish ministries on campus, hosted a dinner to bring together students to celebrate the weekly holy day, Shabbat. The same event last year drew a crowd of about 475 students, and this year Rabbi Michoel and Chana Refson, directors of the Chabad House, were hoping for even more.

As the area began to fill with students, Mrs. Refson felt confident about the number of students expected to come.

“We’re going to have a good turnout,” she said.

The idea for such a large-scale dinner began with Rabbi Refson’s desire to create a Jewish community for University students.
