As difficult and lonely as it can feel to be a part of a minority on a religious campus, we are here to help you not just practice, but grow your faith throughout your college career.  There are many opportunities to connect to Jewish community on campus and in the city of Cincinnati while you are here. Be a part of a faith sharing group, whether it is an interfaith group, or you help us form a Jewish group.  Drop by Hillel just across town for the high holidays or Shabbat. Seek out a professor or rabbi on campus.  Live your faith through service with X-Change, CAD or AB. Let us know what we can do to help you grow.

Jewish Student Organization

The purpose of the Jewish Student Organization (JSO) is to provide Xavier students with a practical means for integrating their Jewish faith into daily life. We are an organization that serves as a resource for the undergraduate and graduat Jewish community within Xavier's campus and the community at large. Through innovative programming, JSO promotes social, political, and religious interaction among all students.
