JGRAD: Jewish Graduate Students


JGRAD (Jewish Graduate Students) boasts a diverse group of graduate students from all areas of study from the greater Princeton area. Our goal is to coordinate social events as well as religious and cultural programs for Graduate students in Princeton and the surrounding area. We host happy hours, learning opportunities, holiday programs, Friday night dinners and much more!  New faces are always welcome. There are also plenty of opportunities if you would like to organize, host or suggest a new event. For more information, please contact Eitan Teiger at et5594@princeton.edu

Moishe Pod

The CJL is happy to be partnering with Tali Pelts ’21 and Gidon Halbfinger, the residents of Princeton’s Moishe Pod, to deliver social, service-oriented, Jewish holiday, and Jewish educational programming to young professionals and grad students in the Princeton area!  Princeton’s Moishe Pod and the CJL will host several programs a month and we hope you’ll join us!  If you have questions, please reach out to Eitan Teiger or Rabbi Ira Dounn.
