Social and Cultural

A major part of Jewish Life is the connection to our community and our heritage.  At the University of Richmond, our students are involved in many different academic and extra-curricular communities, but still are looking for a group of students who understand what it means to be Jewish.  Some of the best experiences our students have are the opportunities to do fun, interesting, or relaxed things around other Jews.  Our Social and Cultural programming is set up to connect the Jewish students to their tradition and one another.  The events may be substantive or more free-flowing, but the point is to create a network of Jewish Life on campus. 

When they come to campus, Richmond, or even D.C., we attend significant Jewish cultural events (lectures, concerts, classes, exhibitions, etc.) as a community. This way we connect to the greater Jewish world and experience some of the wonderful resources available to us.
