Jewish life at the University of Virginia is flourishing. With a strong Jewish Studies Program, kosher food in the dining halls, and the Brody Jewish Center serving as the focal point for Jewish student life on Grounds, Jewish life has never been stronger at UVa. Students at UVa have the opportunity to engage in Jewish life through many varried and diverse avenues. With the support of Charlottesville's local Jewish community, students have the option of being active members and volunteers at Congregation Beth Israel and the chance to participate in community wide Jewish events.
The Brody Jewish Center also serves as a platform for Jewish life at UVa. Through the Brody Jewish Center alone there are eight student groups actively engaged in creating opportunities for Jewish life at UVa. However, if you do not see a group that interests you or you have an idea for a Jewish program on Grounds, the Brody Jewish Center is here to help facilitate that as well.
