Center for Jewish Life - Princeton Hillel



Kesher:  Kesher is the Reform Jewish community at Princeton. Kesher holds joyous weekly student-led Friday night services that incorporate music and prayer, preceded by a "Snack and Schmooze" for the community to relax and reconnect. Kesher's mission is to provide a welcoming space for all students -- Jewish students, students who are exploring Judaism, and guests. Kesher holds regular social events and holiday services and events throughout the year, including meals in town, baking, and more.

Koach: Koach is Princeton's student-run Conservative minyan. Koach holds programming that embraces elements of traditional Judaism in conjunction with modern values and embodies those ideals in weekly Friday night and Havdalah services, monthly Saturday morning services, and other social and holiday events. Koach aims to safeguard the longevity of Conservative Judaism and foster the next generation of enthusiastic Jewish leaders. 

Yavneh: Yavneh is the Orthodox Jewish student group at Princeton. Yavneh holds three minyanim daily, as well as various Torah learning opportunities (often in the excellent and well-stocked Beit Midrash at the CJL). Additionally, we run various social events throughout the year such as Friday night Onegs, guest speakers, and study breaks. 

Partnership Minyan: 

The Partnership Minyan creates a space for increased female and male participation in Tefillah while maintaining a commitment to halachic practice. Through Shabbat Tefillot and Torah reading, singing, and events throughout the year, the Partnership Minyan balances tradition and egalitarianism to provide exciting engagement with Jewish life.
