Low-key, family-like Jewish atmosphere

"Aish at IU is an incredible place with a social, family-like Jewish atmosphere where students can feel comfortable learning about Judaism regardless of their level of observance. The Rabbi & his wife are fantastic, as are the regulars. I've had the opportunity to make friends, learn about life, eat a lot of gourmet meals & go to Israel with Aish Bloomington"

1-on-1 hangout

Rabbi Yaakov and Chana want to take YOU out for coffee! Join either of us at the student union for a coffee on campus and schmooze about anything from Judaism to personal growth. Any subject is on the table and all questions are welcome. Or stop by the house for some homemade treats and to chat.

Thursday afternoon baking/cooking

Stop by Thursdays from 4-9 PM to help cook those amazing Shabbat meals! No previous cooking experience required.

Challah Baking

Gourmet cooking workshops

Hard to believe but Chana grew up throwing frozen ravioli into a pot of water! Personal or small group Jewish cooking sessions with Chana upon arrangement.
