2017/5778 High Holiday Celebrations at the Johnson Center

Students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends are encouraged to join George Mason Hillel for High Holiday celebrations at the Johnson Center.

Our services will be led by Rabbi Jake Singer -Beilin and will feature a variety of opportunities for student and guest participation.  The services will be egalitarian (all participants seated together) and will draw on the holiday traditions of the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements and will utilize the fully translated and fully transliterated Mahzor Eit Ratzon




High Holiday Celebrations at George Mason Hillel are free of charge to students!

What is my parking option for getting to the High Holiday services?

Parking vouchers come at an additional cost of $12. Parking validations will be distributed at High Holiday services. Park at the Pond Parking Deck for a convenient walk to Mason Hillel services. 

Note: You will require a validation to exit the Pond parking garage. It is inserted into the machine instead of credit card payment. Please hold onto your entrance ticket as you will still need that to exit.

We will have validations available during all services for those who have pre purchased them. Parking without a pre purchased validation is $3 per hr up to $15 max per day.

For a map of campus please visit this siteClick here for map. The Pond Parking deck is number 41 and the Johnson Center is number 29. Should you have trouble finding George’s, visit the Info center in the center of the Johnson Center. George’s on the 3rd floor of the Johnson Center is handicap accessible.

Will there be tallit and kippot?

While we have several tallit and kippot we strongly suggest you bring your own as we have a limited number. 

Do I need to participate in the service or need to know Hebrew?

You may participate as much, or as little as you would like for the service. We greatly appreciate those who would like to participate reach out beforehand so that we may give you an honor for the service.

Mason Hillel Presents the Second Annual: Expressions of the Holocaust, Storytellers

November 11, 2014 at 7:00pm, George Mason University, Johnson Center Cinema

Join Mason Hillel for a night of storytelling to honor the survivors and victims of the Holocaust. We will hear from a survivor panel, witness a one act performance, and learn from a student created mini-documentary with a dessert reception to follow the program.

Uniform, a fictional performance, involves three Jewish siblings hiding from the Nazis in Hungary. It is the story of keeping one’s humanity, in an inhumane time. Uniform was written by Mason Alumnus, Aaron Sulkin.

The mini-documentary interviews NoVA survivors, Mason students and faculty regarding their perspectives for keeping the memory alive for future generations. The film was produced by Mason students of Delta Kappa Alpha, a film fraternity. There are limited seats available for community members.

To get tickets visit:

Community Ticket: $36

Mason Students: Free
