Approx Jewish Students on campus - 20+
Lancaster University Jewish Society is a home away from home for Jewish students (and staff) of the University. During the academic year, we aim to host fortnightly Friday Night Dinners and "Lunch & Learns" in our lounge in the Chaplaincy Centre. We also host events for important times in the calendar, be they chagim or other days of significance for the community. We have a small shul that we share with the local community for High Holiday services. We’re a diverse, tightknit, pluralistic JSoc.

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 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.
St Anne’s Hebrew Congregation (Orthodox)
Many others are available in Liverpool and Manchester too.
