High Holidays

sukkah Hillel hosts several events for the High Holidays, from an erev Rosh Hashanah dinner to building a Sukkah in front of the Student Union for Sukkot. While Hillel does not host services on campus, students are welcome at both synagogues in Baton Rouge. This past year, after the erev Rosh Hashanah dinner, students traveled together to services, spending the holiday together.
