Annual Student Friday Night Dinner with the Chief Rabbi

Now in its fourth year, Tribe, University Jewish Chaplaincy and Union of Jewish Students hosted a Friday Night Dinner on 1st April for students across the UK. Held at Finchley United Synagogue with the Chief Rabbi as the keynote speaker, nearly 200 students attended the dinner.

The Chief Rabbi spoke about the Jewish perspective on time and how we, unlike the Jews in Egypt are masters of our own time. The Chief Rabbi reminded the students of their responsibility to continue to work within the Jewish community and use their time to the benefit of the wider Jewish community upon leaving university.

Ian Kamiel, Chief Executive of University Jewish Chaplaincy commented “This is a great opportunity for students and Chaplains from around the country to spend Friday Night together and be inspired by the words of the Chief Rabbi”

Alex Dwek, Chairman of the Union of Jewish Students said “I was delighted to see so many students at the National Student Friday Night. The Chief Rabbi has always been a strong supporter of Jewish Students and the work of UJS, and we are proud to be partnering with Tribe and Chaplaincy on this initiative.”

David Collins, Tribe Campus and Community Executive stated “It was once again a great pleasure for Tribe to organise this dinner with the UJC and UJS. I was delighted with the turnout and am sure the students enjoyed listening to the Chief Rabbi.”

James Neidle, student at the University of Leeds said, “'It was a fantastic evening which combined The Chief Rabbi's inspiring speech and provided a chance to socialise with friends from different universities from around the country.”
