Orthodox Life at Brooklyn

JLIC provides a vibrant Jewish life and community for students in Brooklyn through transformative leadership development, innovative educational programming, and meaningful engagement and social opportunities.

JLIC Brooklyn also regularly partners with Brooklyn College clubs, The Orthodox Club (OC) and LINK, to help provide learning and social events for students.


While there isn’t a regular Shabbat atmosphere at Brooklyn College because most students commute, the action is at the JLIC home. The Alberts regularly host students for Shabbat meals as well as weekly onegs and seudah shlishits.

JLIC also runs 2 community wide Gala Shabbat Dinners a semester and occasional off-campus shabbatons.

All around, the Alberts provide the JLIC community with a robust Shabbat experience throughout the year.

Kosher Dining

Brooklyn College Hillel has a restaurant hosted inside and there are many kosher restaurants close to campus that will deliver.

Housing at Brooklyn College

Brooklyn College is a commuter campus and students typically live at home or in student apartments.

Most students at Brooklyn College live at home, which is often reasonably close to campus. Some travel via public transportation from various boroughs in New York, with a few from as far as New Jersey or Far Rockaway, New York.

The JLIC home is centrally located in Marine Park, within walking distance from most community members.
