Are you, or a member of your family, starting your first year of university? Do you still have questions on what to pack, what to expect and how to make the most of it?

Then Progressive Jewish Students (PJS) is here for you.

PJS – which is jointly run by Liberal Judaism and Reform Judaism – has produced a 10 page guide to getting ready for uni. It includes hints, tips and ideas on everything from being away from home for the first time to how to create a vibrant Jewish life on campus. There’s also advice on relationships, friendships, inclusivity and looking after your mental health.

You can read the guide here.

During the last academic year, PJS ran events all around the UK from Shabbatons in Leeds, Oxford and Durham to a leadership training weekend and retreat in the Peak District (pictured).

PJS fieldworker Maya Skaarbrevik said: “The last year has been such a joy, filled with moments of learning, laughter and new people. I particularly enjoyed teaching sessions on the ‘Me Too’ movement, climate change and feminism. Our retreats were also a highlight and one of the most powerful things that was taught was how to bring a sense of presence, vulnerability and awareness to our everyday lives.”
