NYU’s Bronfman Center to Host Largest Jewish Student-Run Event in the U.S.

  • WHAT: Close to 2000 students will gather together for Shabbat dinner at America’s largest Jewish student-run event when NYU’s Edgar M. Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life hosts “Shabbat for 2000 (S2K).” Planned by a committee of one hundred students, “S2K” will bring together students, alumni and staff from across NYU of all backgrounds and denominations for a free Shabbat dinner. The dinner is supported by more than 50 donors who have committed to building a thriving Jewish community at NYU.
    The event has been renamed from “Shabbat for 1000” - held last year - in recognition of a doubling of the number of participants.
  • WHO: Keynote speaker John Sexton, President of New York University, will join 2000 members of the NYU community at S2K
  • WHEN: Friday, March 2, 2007, 6:30 pm
  • WHERE: The Puck Building, at the corner of Lafayette and Houston Streets

About The Edgar M. Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life
The Edgar M. Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life, opened in 1996, engages one of the largest and most creative Jewish student populations in the world. Tapping into the energy of New York City, the Bronfman Center fosters open and pluralistic communities where students can explore the full spectrum of what it means to be Jewish today. The Bronfman Center — one of only two Jewish student centers that are housed within the university administration rather than functioning as independent non-profit organizations — is affiliated with Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life.
