Building upon UVa’s strong tradition of student leadership, the Brody Jewish Center actively and successfully empowers Jewish students to create relevant and meaningful Jewish experiences that will inspire a lifelong commitment to the Jewish people. The Brody Jewish Center is engaging more Jewish students than ever before through a broad range of activities and creative initiatives for social enjoyment, Jewish learning and community outreach.
A little about us...
Jewish life at the University of Virginia is flourishing. With a strong Jewish Studies Program, a presence in Greek life, kosher food in the dining halls, and the Brody Jewish Center serving as the catalyst for Jewish life on Grounds, Jewish life has never been stronger at UVA.
We strive to create a warm and welcoming community for Jewish students on Grounds. Each year, The Brody Jewish Center connects students to their community, their peers and their heritage through diverse array of programming. The Brody Jewish Center does not have members; all students are welcome to participate in all activities.
Whether it is through weekly Shabbat dinners with an average of 70 students attending each week, a free trip to Israel, social gatherings, interfaith dialogues, or volunteering in the Charlottesville community, there is a place for every student at the Brody Jewish Center.
The Brody Jewish Center is truly an organization for students, run by students. Our internship program is built up of over 30 students who imagine, create, and run events for other students throughout the year.
