Welcome to the Bayit!

COLUMBIA’S PLURALISTIC JEWISH FOOD CO-OP



We are the Beit Ephraim Food Co-op ("The Bayit") -- the nation’s oldest communal housing run by Jewish students. Located two blocks south of the Columbia University campus, life at the Bayit is based on principles of Jewish leadership, volunteerism, and commitment to communal responsibility. 

Bayit residents are undergraduate and graduate students who represent a range of Jewish backgrounds, yet come together each semester to share a student housing environment with a uniquely warm atmosphere; unlike any other in NYC.

We are currently accepting applications for Summer* and Fall 2019 (Summer open to Columbia/non-Columbia students, Fall open to all undergraduate/ graduate students attending a Columbia affiliated institution) apply  by February 21st for application round I → Apply here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScZJb34JjAHtcTRKI0LDSspEHTwFoSRqnblP2wbRADAKcS8ew/viewform?usp=sf_link
