Jewish Cambridge

Cambridge is a  city with an abundant social, cultural and academic life in which the small but vibrant Jewish community plays a major  part.


 For Students

181110.jpgCambridge, of course, plays host to a large number of students and not just in term time, as there are many postgraduate and research students resident throughout the year. At a time when they are away from home and family, students are particularly welcome at Beth Shalom, both at services and other events. We also host a special Student Service once a year, conducted entirely by students.

There are a number of groups in Cambridge catering specifically to Jewish students:

Cambridge University Jewish Society

Cambridge University Chabad Jewish Society



Cambridge Jewish Community Support is a welfare support group available to help individuals in the wider Jewish Community in the Cambridge area, regardless of synagogue affiliation. Invalids, the elderly, the recently bereaved and others needing assistance are given help and support by friendly volunteers acting on an informal basis. 

If you require support or assistance to cope with personal difficulties or are willing to volunteer to help others, please contact CJCS via This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
