Recognizing our Supporters

Slifka Center would not exist or operate without the generosity and partnership of Yale alumni, parents, past parents, students, and friends.

We invite you to read the History of Jewish Life at Yale which chronicles the years before Slifka Center opened its doors, and we are so grateful to all those who answered the call in those days and those who answer that same call today to ensure that future generations of Jewish Yale students will have the opportunity to develop as Jewish adults in an environment that is safe, vibrant, robust, and integrated with the greater Yale community.

We would like to recognize the following groups of supporters:

We wish to thank, and accurately list, each donor. We deeply regret any errors or omissions, and ask that you please contact us at with any corrections.
