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. Services will be hosted at Georges, a light-filled space featuring warm tones and comfortable chairs creating an intimate and inspiring environment for prayer and reflection. 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.

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.
