Prospective Students

Welcome to Jewish Student Life at Yale!

HELLO! If you’re here, that means you must be curious about Jewish life at Yale, and we are so excited to welcome you to Yale’s Jewish community. Yale has an active, vibrant, and diverse Jewish community, and the Slifka Center brings together all our community has to offer.

Though we wish we could be plying you with ice cream and goodies as we tell you what we love most about Yale and Slifka, we’ll do our best to recreate that virtually for now and are hoping to see your beautiful faces on campus soon enough.

Send us an email if you would like to be put in touch with current students or get more information about Slifka!

Please check out the rest of our website, and get to know our student groups, staff and student leaders. Contact our Hillel student Co-Presidents, Maayan Schoen ’23 ( and Sam Pekats ’23 ( if you want more information or just want to say hi— they are always happy to help!
