Liberal Judaism’s student chaplaincy begins with support for our students, whether it is advocacy for the Liberal perspective within the greater Jewish community, helping them cope with anti-Israel demonstrations that spill over into expressions of antisemitism, or bringing them an LJ Shabbat filled with familiar music and a home-cooked meal.
We also represent Liberal Judaism to young Jews across the spectrum, showing them that we are active in a contemporary and compelling way, and encouraging them to join us. This includes support of Egalitarian initiatives, in order to offer Judaism to liberal women as well as men.
Liberal Judaism maintains regular contact with hundreds of people via regular visits, social media and sending out Chanukkah, Passover/Purim and Shabbat packs.
However, the most important work that we do is immeasurable – quiet conversations with individual students, getting to know who they are, with what they are concerned, and how we may provide the help that they need.
If you, or your child, is a Progressive Jewish student going to university, please contact Liberal Judaism’s student and young adult chaplain.
