Events

The Berkeley Bayit hosts a variety of Events for the Jewish community at UC Berkeley in which all house members participate. Each year the event change as the needs of the Berkeley community change and the interests of the members change.

 

Typically in a semester:

  • We hosted a Bayit Shabbat once a semester, more recently we have hosted onegs after Berkeley Hillel's Shabbat services and dinner.
  • We host an Open Event to the entire UC Berkeley Jewish community about once a semester.
  • We host a Closed Event for 30-50 students
  • We have a Workday to fix, clean, and improve the Bayit
