Shabbat Meals

We're excited to offer you several ways to cultivate your own Shabbat experience this quarter! Please use this page as your hub to sign up for a meal or reimbursement, or to submit your receipt.

Meal Sign Up

 

Q: What is the meal?

A: It changes each week! They are all individually wrapped, catered, and Kosher. Each meal comes with two challah rolls and dessert. If you have a menu request, just ask and we'll see how we can make it happen!

 

Q: How do I get a meal?

A: Each week, a new Shabbat meal sign up will be released on this page. You have until Tuesday at 12 pm CT to sign up in order to guarantee your meal. We order extras, but if you sign up in advance you'll be sure to get the one you want!

Q: I have a dietary restriction - can you accommodate that?

A: Yes! We can make modifications to fit your needs. Please include that in the notes of your form.

If you have more questions, reach out to Ilana at ilana.bleich@northwestern.edu.

To sign up for a Shabbat meal on May 14, please complete this form by May 11 at 3:00 pm.
