Prayer | Center for Jewish Life



Kesher: Kesher is the Reform Jewish community at Princeton. The major weekly event is the student-led Friday night service in which students come together for prayer and song. We also host social events and other activities throughout the year. 

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.
