CONSERVATIVE MINYAN
The weekly Friday night Conservative services at Hillel are based on a Ramah/USY type service. This egalitarian minyan provides not only Shabbat and holiday services, but also an escape from the banality of academic life into the inspirational and spiritual world, as well as a meaningful social experience.

ORTHODOX MINYAN
The Orthodox Minyan enjoys the regular and active participation of students and numerous families in the area. It meets every morning, Friday night and Saturday morning for services, as well as late every Saturday afternoon for services and the third Shabbat meal. The Minyan sponsors programs during the year that appeal to one’s culinary and intellectual senses.

HIGH HOLIDAYS
Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox services are conducted on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (check the Events Calendar for times and locations) as well as all other Jewish Holidays during the year. Dinners are served in the Hillel Sukkah throughout Sukkot and lunches and dinners are served during the eight days of Passover, Chanukah menorahs and candles are available at Hillel. On Purim there are traditional and non-traditional readings of the Megillah, followed by one of Ann Arbor’s biggest Jewish parties of the year.

UNIVERSITY EXAMS ON JEWISH HOLIDAYS
Students who cannot attend classes or take an exam because of religious observances should, in accordance with University policy, notify their instructors well in advance so that satisfactory alternative arrangements can be made. Any student (Jewish or non-Jewish) who encounters a problem with religious observance at the University should contact the Hillel office for assistance.
