Hillel at Virginia Tech High Holidays 

For years our Hillel has served as a community gathering place during the High Holidays. We have had over a thousand individuals use our Center for services and dinners. As social distancing becomes a major factor in our lives, we want to make sure you know that we are still here for you in a safe manner, even from afar. We are offering in-person and virtual options for the Holidays.
