Approximately 15+ students

Society leader: Emma Sherrard

We are a small Jewish Society of around 15 or so members due to the small study body at Central. We were founded in the academic year 2020/2021 by Ahava Hayward. We have done online cooking events via zoom as well as regular weekly meetings. We are currently in the process of building working relationships with surrounding Jewish organisations such as JW3. As a society we are working with the school and the student union in order make Central a more welcoming and accessible place for Jewish students. Our members are from a diverse range of Jewish backgrounds and as we move forward as a society our events and ethos will have that diversity at our centre.


Kosher food and accommodation

Central does not have its own accommodation but you can stay in University of London intercollegiate halls, however there are no kosher provisions. Central is in North London as a short bus ride away from Jewish areas such as Golders Green and Hendon where there are many different restaurants and stores to buy kosher food.
