Hanukkah @ Hillel

Join us for Hanukkah events all 8 nights! From a Hanukkah party to candle lighting each night, we have all the Hanukkah fun happening at Hillel!


Looking to light your menorah in your dorm room? There is a policy for that:



Here is how the process works:

  • Student reaches out to the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) to request an exemption.  If they are not sure who this person is, their HF can tell them or they can find it on their hall information page here: https://www.housing.wisc.edu/residence-halls/

  • The student and the RLC meet to discuss the request, including the dates, location, frequency, duration, storage of items, and general fire safety needs for their request.

  • RLC will inform Facilities staff of the request and inquire about any concerns/considerations for this space.

  • RLC will email resident to approve the request and will note any special considerations or expectations for their request.

  • Student should be prepared to show approval email if room is addressed for burning candles to confirm an exemption was made for them.
