What if I've never been to a Shabbat service at UF?

Then this is the time to try one.  There are so many options, from Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Israeli, by the water, at a pool, and even one at the Football Stadium!  Come see what makes being Jewish fun.  To top it off, you'll be part of history making at UF and can meet a whole bunch of other Jewish students.
