I am thankful for the CJL because I am comfortable being Jewish here, when sometimes that’s not the case in other areas of campus.
The CJL is a welcoming place for everyone on campus and it provides me with an opportunity to meet new Jewish students every time I walk in the door. It is a place where people have always understood me. The staff are amazing and always asked for ways to improve life at the CJL. They ask about my personal life, projects, and goals, and have always made me comfortable. The CJL truly does amazing work on this campus in giving the Jewish community a comfortable space where we can express ourselves as Jews and have our problems or concerns or life questions understood by other Jews.
