With an undergraduate student body that is approximately 35 percent Jewish, Brandeis holds a unique position in higher education. Our Jewish students come from diverse backgrounds but share one thing in common: a desire to pursue an academically rigorous college education while being able to feel safe and supported in whatever way they want to express their Judaism.
