What we’re all about

University of Leeds Jewish Society is a lively, vibrant and friendly community that unites Jewish students around Leeds. They provide constant Friday night dinners, Jewish learning and cultural events, and a variety of club nights and social activities. Members also have access to Hillel House, a student centre on campus which includes exclusive facilities such as a study centre, function room and a place to hang out with friends!

The best way to be in the know about all things JSoC is to head over to our Facebook group - if you click the website button it'll take you right there.

Not on Facebook?

No worries! Send us an email and a member of our lovely committee will get back to you as soon as they can. 

JSoC is open to anyone who identifies as Jewish or who is interested in Judaism. This includes Jews of all denominations - Reform, Masorti, Orthodox, Jedi... whatever floats your boat! If you don't identify as Jewish but are still interested, please do get in touch! We'd be more than happy to host you at one of our society Friday Night Dinners (not quite like the TV show, but we try) or have a friendly chat. We require a degree of respect towards our faith and members, so please don't be offended if we ask you to make accommodations if you attend our events, we really do want you to get involved!

Yes! The University currently has custom built Kosher accommodation in two halls of residences: Montague Burton and Leodis. The halls are ten minutes away from Hillel House on foot, and the flats are accessible without breaking Shabbat. Both residences are really lovely and affordable, and the distance from Campus is hard to beat. Bare in mind, there are limited spaces, so don't be disheartened if you don't get a room in a Kosher flat - you can also apply to live in Hillel House, or speak to a member of committee if you're really at a dead end.
