With this Jewish desire to help the sick, when seeking a place to learn medicine, many search for a university that has a Jewish community. They look for a place where they can keep the Jewish traditions that are so important to them. Even if they’re in a place that’s far from home and in an unfamiliar land.
The new Jewish Center of Grenada is first and foremost a home for every Jewish SGU student. We provide kosher food, hot meals on Shabbos and holidays, help when in crisis, a shoulder to lean on, Torah learning, and the skills and tools needed to keeping Judaism and its laws.
Every Friday evening we make Kiddush and serve a large Shabbat meal in our home. Many times the Shabbat meal is the highlight of the student’s week. This is a time to rest, talk to other students, laugh, relax from daily stress, and change perspectives. The students appreciate the good that has been made for them at the beginning of their career.
with the new Center we aim to extend our services and offerings to the Jewish student community of SGT in particular.
