What are the demographics of the Jewish Community at UF?
UF has a large and diverse Jewish community with thousands of Jewish students of all backgrounds. The vast majority of Jewish students at UF identify as reform, conservative, or just Jewish. There is also a very small orthodox community.
Where can I find kosher meals at UF?
Hillel offers kosher meals for Shabbat and holidays.
Most kosher-observant Jewish students at UF ear vegetarian or pescatarian with their peers, either on campus or as part of Greek housing plans. Since generally only freshmen live on campus, the majority of upperclassmen cook for themselves in their own kitchens, and, if they keep kosher, prepare meals with kosher items from local grocery stores.
Chabad offers a small kosher meal plan for students who prefer more formal kosher options.
What kinds of religious searches are available and when?
Religious services are only part of what Hillel has. We're proud to offer student-led Shabbat evening services (traditional conservative and a musical reform) each week during the fall and spring semesters. Services are also held on High Holidays.
