Queen Mary

Visit us on Facebook qmuljsoc@gmail.com

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!

We are non-denominational, and everyone is always welcome. Members from other London J-Socs are also welcome at any of our events.

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.

Although there is no kosher accommodation on campus there are many kosher flatshares all over London as well as a Hillel House in Golders Green.

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 and sandwiches sold in Sainsbury’s right across the road from the university.

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

Friday Night Dinners are held by both chaplaincy on either Great Portland Street or near Marble Arch, and Chabad on Euston Road. Ask a member about the famous FND Friday dinners. Feel open to ask any member of the committee and we will find you somewhere for a lovely Shabbat meal.
