Social Justice

Social justice is a core value of our tradition and for many Jewish students it is a primary emphasis of their Judaism. The Center for Jewish Life embraces Hillel’s question, “If I am only for myself, who am I?” and Princeton’s informal motto, “In the nation’s service, and in the service of all nations.”

Selling ChallahWe place great importance on empowering and assisting students as they integrate social justice into their lives at Princeton and in the wider community. We connect students with local and national organizations through potential internships, collaborative volunteer opportunities and educational programs. 

Students are also engaging in social justice through:

CJL Service Focus Program

Challah for Hunger
