Pegasis Grand Ballroom was ready for Shabbat 613.

Pegasis Grand Ballroom was ready for Shabbat 613.

Chabad at the University of Central Florida sponsored “Shabbat 613” on Friday night, February 21. Over 600 students and faculty attended the very special Shabbat dinner at the university’s Pegasis Grand Ballroom of the Student Union.

Just one year after completing “Shabbat 500,” Chabad at UCF’s Rabbi Chaim Lipskier and his wife, Rivkie, wanted to increase their goal of attendees to 613. The new number would represent the 613 commandments of the Torah.

Hundreds of Jews from different backgrounds joined together for the massive celebration. The event was cosponsored by all Jewish organizations at UCF including Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority, Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity, Knights for Israel and Hillel. Student government contributed to the event.

Chabad at UCF services all Jewish students in the Orlando area with Shabbat dinners, holiday programs, weekly BBQs, Torah classes, trips to Israel and more! For more information, see www.JewishUCF.com.
