    I'm going to uni next year and want to get more involved with my religion. Any ideas about what makes a good JSoc and how I can get involved and fit in there would be awesome!

    I am surprised this might influence you on where to go. Not aware of any uni which jewish people favour. One thing you cna do if you are that keen is to contact Jewish societies across you potential unis and start interacting so you can get an idea of how they work and which ones are active. they will have a facebook, e-mail or website from the SU page.

    Start off with the Union of Jewish Students and network from there.

    The most active ones are at the 'Jewnies' Leeds, Birmingham and Nottingham being the top three (and also Nottingham Trent & Leeds Met I think). They usually do regular friday night dinners, saturday services, general socials e.c.t The way to get involved is the same as with any other society, turn up to the society fair and sign up and you'll get details of events & can decide which to go to.

    It won't really impact where I chose to go (in fact I've already made my choices and applied) I was just curious! Thanks so much for all your advice!

    Perhaps worth researching those universities with people in the Labour Party or Labour Society who make anti-semitic comments or condone them.

    Are these traditionally known as having a high level of jewish students? If so then do you now why?

    Yes they are. No idea what the original appeal was to the first Jewish people who went, but it seems to have sparked some kind of chain reaction. Nowdays Jewish students are attracted by the idea of having others around to celebrate Jewish festivals & the sabbath and move in with in a kosher house share from 2nd year onwards.
