Below are the available Jewish opportunities in Prague. Please click on the button below and let us know what you are interested in this semester!
- Beit Simcha: A Progressive (Reform) community just outside of the city center that is welcoming to all. The community holds services and communal meals for High Holidays, although mainly in Czech.
- Chabad of Prague: An Orthodox Lubavitch organization that welcomes Jews of all backgrounds. It’s an open and welcoming environment, but it is important to know that all announcements are made in Hebrew to cater to the large Israeli tourist population.
- Jewish Community of Prague: The central Orthodox community holds traditional Friday night and Holiday services in Hebrew at the Alt Neu Synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe. The community is very strict in its membership and attendance policies – connect with KAHAL staff before attending to ensure you will be able to pass through security.
- Masorti Prague: A Conservative community specializing in hosting students that holds frequent Friday night and Holiday services in Hebrew and English that are very accessible to international students.
- Moishe House: A group of students and young adults that live together in an apartment and put on several events a month (Jewish and non-Jewish events for local young Jews) often in conjunction with CUZM. All of the residents speak excellent English and love having international students join. Similarly to CUZM (and often in conjunction with), their events are publicized in a private, secret Facebook group (usually there’s an English translation under the Czech event description) so connect with KAHAL staff to get access!
