Queen Mary

Visit us on Facebook qmul.jsoc@ujs.org.uk

Queen Mary is home to an active and involved Jewish community, with events ranging from Lunch and Learns to Purim parties. As for the Israel side of the Society, we showcase our support for the homeland through a mix of cultural and political events – Krav Maga, speakers, falafel, Pints for Peace, and more. There’s something for everyone!

Whatever your affiliation, religion, race, gender, political party… the Jewish and Israel Society is here for you. 💙Am Yisroel Chai 💙

Presidents: Sam Koslover

Campus Notes

Throughout the eighteenth- and nineteenth-centuries, the East End was the largest Jewish area in London. You can see some historic Jewish sites on campus – for example, we have a Sephardic cemetery on campus, with a traditional washing cup and sink located outside of its fence. Near to the Engineering Building was a home for Jewish women to seek refuge.

Walk around the area, and look out for mezuzot… There are a few shops that still retain this connection to their Jewish founders!

Kosher Food

There are no kosher shops in the Mile End area, but there is kosher food for sale at Jewish Care in Stepney Green, a short walk from both QMUL campuses. There are also kosher groceries sold in Sainsbury’s and the Co-Op.

We always provide kosher food free of charge at our Lunch and Learns, and kosher snacks and drinks are available at all of our events.
