  • Kabbalat Shabbat dinners  - Enjoy an intimate service and a free kosher vegetarian dinner.

  • Onegs after Berkeley Hillel's Shabbat services and dinner

  • Shabbat morning services

  • Shabbat Torah study

  • Havdallah activities

  • Jewish speakers, discussions, and study opportunities


Past Jewish Holiday Celebrations have included:

  • Helping to build a sukkah and eating outside; shake a lulav with us!

  • Celebrating Tu B'shvat - the new year for the trees. Followed by sampling fruits and a wonderful home cooked meal.

  • Purim Festivities (and don’t forget Bring your grogger!)

  • Passover study and seders

Other Activities at the Bayit:

"One shabbat our theme was "Yoho, Yoho a Bayit life's for me"… Come to Pirate Shabbat at the Berkeley Bayit – the only Jewish co-op in Berkeley - and join 12 crazy Jewish pirates for a night of Shabbat fun! Meet at Hillel to walk up to the Bayit at 6:45pm. Services will start at 7pm and dinner at 8pm. "
