Beautiful Kabbalat Shabbat services - both egalitarian and traditional, High-profile political speakers, and various interfaith projects.

Kosher Food & Accommodation

 Cambridge has a Chabad centre, and Beth Shalom Reform Synagogue! In terms of Kosher food, although you’ll be able to get almost everything you need from the local Sainsbury’s, there are a few shops that stock Kosher foods. Derby Stores has a small stock of Kosher bread, cheeses, meat, pot noodles and other condiments. They will also take orders for deliveries from London. JSoc receives orders of food from Just Kosher every few weeks. If you’d like to order Kosher food, contact the Canteen Treasurer, currently Avi Lederman!
