Our Mission 

The Center for Jewish Living is an entirely student-run Jewish organization serving Cornell University's vibrant and diverse Jewish community. Since 1959, the CJL has been the epicenter of Jewish life and belonging at Cornell, from running daily religious services to providing kosher food, and organizing social programming. Most importantly, the house located at 106 West Avenue is our students’ home away from home, offering a residence hall with single and double rooms for rent each semester. Through our various Jewish resources, it is our mission to provide a warm, welcoming, and supportive Jewish experience for you at Cornell.

What Students Say

Hello everyone! My name is Gavi Schechter, I hail from Woodmere NY, and I’m a junior (class of 2025) majoring in chemical engineering. I’m involved in The American institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and I was recently a TOM Fellow at Cornell. I love the CJL for many (many many!!!) reasons but especially because of Friday night lechaims and the fact that I’m always able to be my true self. I think my favorite CJL event has to either be the dodgeball tourney or karaoke night. The best hangout spot in the ceej is definitely the basement-nothing like watching hockey/football/basketball on the tv with my friends. Super excited for the year! Let’s go!!
