Local Jewish Community

The local Jewish communities in Winston- Salem and Greensboro, North Carolina show their southern hospitality to our WFU community everyday.  They invite us to all their services and community events.

In addition to all holiday services and celebrations on campus, some students choose the “off-campus” alternatives.   Students are invited to attend all local synagogue services for free – our partners only ask that we tell them we are coming due to security and logistic reasons.
