There is a variety of religious and cultural Jewish programming on campus. The J-Life Club in collaboration with Student Life hosts monthly themed Shabbat dinners, programming around Jewish holidays, and Israeli cultural celebrations. AJU students regularly collaborate with Jewish organizations to plan programming with organizations such as Hillel, Young Judea, and the Jewish World Watch. Each year ASAJU (our undergraduate student government) hosts a Purim carnival for the AJU community.

An egalitarian and traditional Jewish minyan (prayer service) is regularly held during morning and afternoon hours in the Sara and Simcha Lainer Beit Midrash (house of study) which can be found on the second floor balcony.. Prayer services are facilitated by the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies and are open to the entire student population, for students to participate in and lead. Minyan is available Monday-Thursday (see hours below) and holds a regular Torah Service.  Services also accommodate for any Jewish holiday that does not require that the university close; e.g the 10 Days of Repentance, the intermediate days of Sukkot, Chanukah, or Rosh Chodesh (beginning of the Jewish month). Occasionally, the Beit Midrash will also accommodate a kiddush (small festive snack) for celebrations for it's community members.
