Medical Center Jewish Association

We are a student-run organization that promotes Jewish awareness through social events for the holidays and also through perspectives in the health fields. Our events are open to students from all Columbia graduate schools, and we have been working to build relationships with the Jewish communities at other medical schools in Manhattan.

Some of our past events include:

  • Weekly Shabbat candle lighting (challah and grape juice included)
  • Inter-medical school Shabbat dinner, in collaboration with four other medical schools in New York City
  • Hanukkah party
  • Hamantaschen study break
  • Student-led, potluck Passover seder

We look forward to seeing you at our events!
