Who We Are: 

As a department within the Division of Student Affairs, Jewish Life at Duke serves as the home for Jewish life on campus. Within the Freeman Center for Jewish Life, one can find the department of Jewish Life at Duke and the accredited Rubenstein-Silvers Hillel. The Freeman Center for Jewish Life serves as a home away from home for all those seeking to engage with the Jewish community while at Duke. Students, staff, and faculty come together to create a vibrant, diverse and pluralistic Jewish environment. We are here to help celebrate holidays, make friends, enjoy a good meal, discuss Israel, as well as connect those interested with amazing Jewish opportunities to campus, at home and throughout the world.

Where are you from originally? What made you decide to attend Duke?
I am from Queens, NY and Rockland County, NY.  I decide to attend Duke for a number of reasons - I already knew that I wanted to go to medical school and I knew Duke had a strong pre-med program and a first-class hospital; I wanted to leave my comfort zone of the Northeast and try someplace new; I visited Duke with my family and fell in love with the school and the environment; I love college basketball; - the list goes on and on!

Happy (almost) Passover! In honor of the Passover tradition, we’re tacking on a fifth question: what makes JLD’s Passover so special?

Well for starters, Jewish Life at Duke will be offering free Seders at the Freeman Center on both the first and second night of Passover. Many students who are looking for a traditional Passover experience attend these Seders with the larger Duke community. Throughout the holiday, the Duke community can go to the Freeman Center for kosher-for-Passover meals. Other locations on campus have kosher- for-Passover dining options for those Dukies who can’t make it over to Freeman during the week.
