Support Jewish Life in Honor of Your Reunion

Yale Reunion Giving in support of Slifka Center

Slifka Center has been home to Jewish life at Yale since 1995. Our dedicated facility for Jewish community gatherings, education programs, services, and Yale’s only source of kosher food, is located in the heart of the campus at 80 Wall Street (across from Silliman College).

The Slifka Center: Building Forward capital campaign will fund the building’s first significant renovations in its 25 years. We are literally “building forward” by investing in our facility’s ability to support the needs of Yale students in 2020 and beyond.

With the cooperation and approval of the University, alumni, parents and friends may choose to be granted Yale Credit for gifts to Slifka Center: Building Forward received by June 30, 2021, or up to a total of $8 million, whichever comes first. Granted Yale Credit in support of this effort can be applied to the University’s reunion as well as capital campaigns.

It is a Yale tradition for alumni to make annual and capital gifts in honor of their own reunions. With the launch of the Slifka Center: Building Forward capital campaign, alumni may designate their reunion gift to supporting Jewish life at Yale via Slifka Center. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity that we cannot afford to miss.
