Current Students


At the Center for Jewish Living, students of all backgrounds and denominations are welcome. Our religious and social programming events aim to imbue each student with a sense of belonging and community while reinforcing their connection to their Jewish roots. The CJL is an entirely student-run operation led by an elected student board.

Our house at 106 West Avenue is the epicenter of the CJL community, serving as a home away from home for all of our members. The CJL is also a full-fledged residence hall with single and double rooms available for rent during the semester. For more information on housing, click here. To learn more about the CJL and Jewish life at Cornell, explore the sections below.

This summer’s meet-up will take place on August 5, 2018. We will first be meeting for a free pizza lunch in Central Park (66th street entrance) at 12:00 pm. After lunch, at around 1:45 pm, we will walk to the Central Park Zoo.

You’re invited to attend one or both parts of the free event.​ Please fill out the RSVP form linked here to let us know which parts you will be attending. If you plan on coming, join the Facebook event to get pertinent information closer to the event.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. We’re looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks!
