University Jewish Chaplaincy

Building student communities. Invigorating Jewish life.

Who we are

University Jewish Chaplaincy supports Jewish Students in 12 regions at dozens of universities across the UK.

Our chaplains and chaplaincy couples are there for Jewish students of all backgrounds and affiliations. They provide a warm, vibrant, inclusive and inspiring Jewish environment with thousands of students benefiting every year from their pastoral, spiritual and practical support. Our goal is to give Jewish students – wherever they may be – access to a UJC chaplain.

Chaplains work to inspire students to own their Judaism and to empower them to make it a meaningful part of their lives as they move into adulthood. They are also on hand to offer support during challenging times as students adapt to life away from home for the first time.
