Students have been putting their heads down and getting their books out ahead of exam term. But respite has been on hand, thanks to ongoing Friday night dinners and other communal activities. Notable events have included Israel celebrations across universities like Edinburgh, while in Birmingham chaplaincy laid on a plentiful barbecue in the sunshine.
Students are getting back into university life with late-night revision sessions, supplemented by bagels and Friday night dinners. Meanwhile, Holocaust Memorial Day proved once more to be an incredibly significant day on campus - reminding all that remembrance remains imperative.
The beginning of December was lit by menorahs as Chanucah ushered in the cold, wintery month. Students around the UK got into the holiday spirit, joining JSocs, Chabadniks and Chaplains in celebrating the occasion with parties, dinners - and, of course, a whole lot of doughnuts.
November is well underway and JSocs are busy as usual...
J.E.W kicked off on November 11, taking university campuses by storm up and down the country. One particular highlight was the omnipresence of two Ethiopian Jewish students, Ashager Araro and Rivka Avera, who toured campuses across the UK telling their stories to captivated audiences.
It's been a busy beginning to October. Aish on Campus held their annual welcome Firestarter BBQs across university campuses in Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham and Manchester for over 400 students. Manchester JSoc held its Crawl of Duty for over 90 students and Nottingham Chabad held a sushi welcome lunch for 200 students.
Scenes from freshers' weeks on British campuses. With gap year uptake down, JSocs said sign-ups had been at record levels this year, including 150 signed up so far at Kings' College London, 150 at Leeds, 105 at Manchester and 220 at Nottingham. Photos: UJS
