Join a Student Club
The Bronfman Center is comprised of a number of student-initiated and student-run clubs that speak to students niche interests and connections. Combined, they represent the incredible diversity and scope of the NYU Jewish community.
Travel the World
The Bronfman Center provides opportunities for students to travel all over world, both to explore Israel and to provide direct service to communities in need. On our Alternative Break trips, students participate in house building, pipe-laying, planting and more while living and studying the connection between social justice, service and Judaism. On our Taglit-Birthright Israel trips, students explore their connection to Israel on a free 10 day trip with NYU peers.
Meet Our Rabbis
The rabbis at the Bronfman Center are young, dynamic and inspiring. They provide innovative spaces for Jewish learning and exploration, open their homes to students for Shabbat and holiday meals, and make themselves easily available for meeting one-on-one.

I was horrified, as we all were, to learn yesterday of the shooting at the Kansas Jewish Community Center and the Village Shalom senior residence facility. The news is incongruous with the spirit of the day in the Jewish calendar, a time when Israelite suffering and oppression nears its end and redemption begins.
The reality is that for the families of the victims, the wounded, and the community at large, this will not be a season of redemption. It is our responsibility to stand together with those most afflicted, to send the message clearly that if there is pain in the Jewish community of Kansas, then there cannot be full celebration in the Jewish community in New York.
Although the Bronfman Center anticipates hosting hundreds of students for celebratory seders in the coming days, we have committed to sending a delegation of staff and students to Kansas later this week. We hope to participate in communal gatherings, meet with individuals, and return with concrete ways for our student community to continue its solidarity. If you are able to join the group or would like to contribute to its purpose, please know that both kinds of support are needed. Please email Tracy Figueroa at email@example.com.
With prayers towards the ultimate redemption,
Rabbi Yehuda Sarna
Skirball Executive Director
