Jewish Cultural Celebration

Jewish Cultural Celebration 2021

November 15-19, 2021

“Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue” comes directly from the Torah where justice is considered a core principle in Judaism. Along with justice, education is also a core principle in Judaism, the Jewish Student Association encourages everyone to join this week’s events to learn about Judaism and the role plays in Jewish activism.
