Our Work

Our Jewish Engagement and Enrichment Work

At UJS, every Jewish student is welcome and included regardless of their religious affiliation, belief or mode of practice. This is embodied in our core value of cross-communalism. Students take on religious leadership roles in JSocs across the country, whether that be as part of an orthodox or egalitarian student minyan, leading songs or grace after meals at Friday night dinners, or chanting Torah at one of the many Shabbat morning service options at UJS Convention.

University is a great time for students to explore their Jewish beliefs and practice, learn from one another and discover for themselves how to live a Jewish life that fulfils them, and UJS is here to support and facilitate that throughout the Jewish year.

Check out the Jewish Engagement and Enrichment Hub for more resources and information!
