London Friday Night Dinners

In September 2015, Friday Night Dinners (FND) was set up to provide weekly Friday night dinners for Jewish students living in London. London has 32 different universities across the city and it can be challenging to meet people.

Every week a large number of students from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities come together in central London to enjoy good food and meet new people in a relaxed atmosphere. A student committee organises the evenings including themed weeks each term. It’s a great way to make new friends and is the only regular cross-communal and student-led event in London.

There is a catered three-course kosher meal served with wine and some weeks see interesting speakers attend. There is a welcoming group for new people at the door, the atmosphere is lively and the feedback very positive! It’s a great place to meet new and old friends.

This is FND’s third year and we aim to reach more students this year. The meals are heavily subsidised so students can enjoy a three-course meal with wine for only £5!

Upcoming events include:

Shabbat UK Friday Night Dinner 27/10/17

Shabbat UK Lunch 28/10/17

Any students starting or attending London Universities can email FND at with any questions.
