Brandeis Orthodox Organization
The Brandeis Orthodox Organization serves the Orthodox community of Brandeis University. As one of the most vibrant observant communities on any college campus, BOO is chartered under the Student Union and associated with Brandeis Hillel. BOO exists to fulfill and further the religious, social, and cultural needs of the Orthodox Jewish population at Brandeis University and is dedicated to the principles of Torah-Halakhic Judaism. We offer social events, educational events, daily minyanim, Shabbat and holiday davening, learning programs, chesed opportunities, and a multitude of ways to get involved in the community! BOO's members are active participants in general campus life and are valued contributors to the Student Union, the arts, the printed media, athletics, and Hillel, among other endeavors. The relatively small size of the University (around 3,400 undergraduates) engenders many opportunities for fusing religious growth with a genuine commitment to the broader campus community.
