Chabad at UCF partnered with Student Government and several Jewish organizations to host the 10th annual Mega Shabbat in the Pegasus Ballroom on Friday.

An amplified spin on a Shabbat dinner, about 500 people gathered together to eat traditional Jewish food and attend a candle-lighting ceremony as Shabbat began at sundown on Friday, said Rivkie Lipskier, program director of Chabad at UCF.

“I think it really makes students feel so proud,” Lipskier said. “They walk into their campus and they’re able to celebrate something that’s so special in such a public way.”
