What is Chabad on Campus?

We offer the anchor and embrace of 'family' for Jewish students and the broader community regardless of background, observance or affiliation. Consider our address one you can turn to for any reason at all 24 hours a day.

People come to Chabad for many different reasons:

  • Some come on a Friday night for a bowl of homemade chicken soup, fresh baked challah and camaraderie;
  • Some come simply to socialize - to relax and enjoy themselves with Jewish activities such as Challah or Hamantashen baking, shofar making, or outdoor trips; or activities with other Jewish students including kosher cooking, spa nights, concerts, movie nights, and more;
  • Some come during a moment of personal challenge knowing they will always get a confidential, sympathetic ear, a warm open heart, and appropriate advice or referrals;
  • Some come for one of the many classes offered - from beginner's Hebrew to Parsha, Mysticism and advanced Talmud - or simply to ask serious questions about Judaism;
  • Some come to attend Shabbat or holiday services.

Leadership: At Chabad students are invited to take leadership roles, helping foster the creation of the next generation of empowered Jewish leadership.

Tradition: At Chabad, students have the ability to discover the warmth and beauty of their heritage, and learn to apply the timeless Jewish principle of Ahavat Israel.

Community: We believe that family and community are vital keys to character building. That's why we open our home to students and not, helping inspire them with a respect for family values and a deep meaningful concern for the community at large.

Future: We believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today. For there to be a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today!
