Approx Jewish Students on campus - 25+

Lancaster Jewish Society is a friendly, pluralistic society. We have regular events that cater for all denominations, such as Lunch and Learns and Friday night dinners. We also celebrate the holidays and hold services for most of these. On top of this, we have special events such as wine tasting, challah baking and socials.

Lancaster JSoc is a warm, albeit small and welcoming society located in a quaint northern town.

Kosher Food & Accommodation

There is one supermarket in town which has a small Kosher section, but students often go to Manchester to buy more in bulk. The society has Kosher food delivered from Manchester and we are also able to order for students if they wish.

Unfortunately, there is no Kosher accommodation at present on campus but the Jsoc has a Kosher kitchen.

Local Synagogue Information

The Jsoc has a small Shul on campus which is used by the local community for services.

Other synagogues:

Blackpool Reform Jewish Congregation

St Anne’s Hebrew Congregation (Orthodox)

Southport Reform Synagogue

Many others are available in Liverpool and Manchester too.
