Jewish Student Testimonials
"CUJS is home away from home regardless of how involved you wish to be. With great variety of events and a consistently amazing Friday night, it really is the best Jewish society in the country," Alex Cohen.
"As a Fresher, Cambridge Jewish Society has been nothing but welcoming. There is a great sense of community amongst its members and Friday nights in particular are always lively and entertaining," Emma Lewis.
To eat: There are quite a few good restaurants in Cambridge (none kosher though). The Rainbow Café is a great vegetarian restaurant. For those interested in a career in the city, join your college Law or Economics society and get taken out to some of Cambridge's finest restaurants by prying potential employers.
To drink: College bars are great for atmosphere (particularly your own college).
Nightlife: Each college has their own nights at certain clubs.
