Accepted Students Shabbaton

In coordination with Binghamton University’s Admitted Student weekend, Hillel at Binghamton will be hosting a Spring Shabbaton for admitted students. This Shabbaton gives Jewish students the opportunity to experience what Jewish life is like at Binghamton University by spending a Shabbat on campus as guests of our Hillel and our amazing Jewish student community. This weekend will include a full array of Shabbat services and programming and will be open to students and parents!


                      The cost of this weekend is $36 and includes all meals, and all activities and learning sessions.                                                         

Dorm hospitality with a Binghamton college student arranged for all those already registered by April 10th.                                     

Guaranteed on-campus housing is now closed for all others. We would still love to have you come be part of the program, but we can no longer guarantee space to stay with a current student. 


STUDENTS:Click HERE to sign up! Please register by April 13.


PARENTS: looking for a place to stay as a family? Click here by April 6 to book in Hillel’s block of rooms at the Residence Inn. This hotel is within the eruv and offers Shabbat-observant accommodations.


See full schedule below! Any questions about the weekend? Please contact Rabbi Marley Weiner at


PLEASE NOTE: This event will be alcohol free and drug free.  Participants who violate this policy will forfeit their participation and all program costs.  Parents and the Admissions Department will be informed of any violations or other illegal activity, which may affect your admissions status.
