Commencement

2017 Yale College Commencement: May 19-22

We invite the Class of 2017 and your families to Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale as you celebrate this very special milestone. Schmooze with Slifka Center staff, share Shabbat, and enjoy the art exhibition in the Allan and Leah Rabinowitz Gallery. We will offer Shabbat services, Kiddush/Happy Hour and Shabbat Dinner on Friday night, lunch on Saturday and our famous Sunday Bagel Brunch.   If you have any questions or would like to contact us, please call Ellen Rabin at 203-432-7376 or email at [email protected].
