Approx Jewish Students on campus - 30-35

Here at Exeter, we might be small, but we are mighty! We’re a pluralist and a-political society, which means we’re open to anyone and everyone. The cornerstone of our society are our themed Friday Night Dinners, which we hold every fortnight; from sushi making nights to PE sports days, they’re Friday Night Dinners to remember! In addition to these Friday Night Dinners, we also host a whole range of other fun socials throughout the year which adds to the communal feel of our society. We also host other events such as our popular Lunch & Learn socials, where we invite in different charities to campus to lead a short session over lunch, and our legendary Purim balls which are the highlight of the year! Really important to us is the welfare of our members, and if you’re currently at Exeter or are thinking of joining always feel free to ask us – we’re only too happy to help.


President: Matthew Clayman


Jsoc interests:  We have a particular interest in interfaith events and on Holocaust education, all of which we partner up with different societies and the Student Guild for. Creating a communal feel is really important for us, and our popular Friday Night Dinners are the cornerstone of this.
