Havdalah Under the Stars

Celebrate with Us!

The NYU Bronfman Center in partnership with Hillel at NYU is excited to announce Havdalah Under the Stars, a spinoff of Shabbat for 2000, one of NYU’s premier events and the largest Jewish student-run event in the United States. On the evening of Saturday, February 29, 2,000 students, alumni, parents, and friends will gather to share in a Havdalah ceremony followed by a night of music and dancing at The Metropolitan Pavilion.

Inspired by the beautiful tradition of communal Shabbat, we aspire to refresh and expand on our shared experience with Havdalah. We see the interwoven design of the Havdalah candle as a symbol of that commitment to relationship-building and pluralism. This event exemplifies a pillar of Bronfman Center education and leadership development through woven leadership—the idea that each of us needs one another in order to make the largest impact on our community.
