About this organization






Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale is committed to be the pluralistic center for Jewish life on the Yale campus by encouraging students, and the greater Yale community, regardless of their faith, to deepen their connection to and understanding of Judaism and Israel through worship, social justice, art and culture, kosher dinning, education, travel and celebration.


In 1995, the lexicon of the Yale campus changed forever with the opening of the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life, for the first time bringing under one roof Yale’s main Jewish student programs: Hillel; The Kosher Kitchen; and Young Israel House. Overnight, “Slifka” came to describe both a place and a program, and ensured that being a Jew at Yale is celebrated. Through Slifka Center, Jewish life at Yale is woven into the natural rhythm of the campus, and harnesses the innovative thinking and intellectual rigor of the university. Slifka Center is among the premiere campus Jewish centers in the world, with the capacity to offer programs of breadth, depth and centrality to campus life, Jewish and non-Jewish, that allows us to ‘compete’ successfully for our students’ time and attention. We are developing future Jewish leaders, and men and women who will lead in the private sector and public spheres Jewish-ly.
