Mission Statement

There is enormous indifference and ignorance among Jewish students and many if not most are losing interest in their faith. Chabad provides a way for Jewish students and community to enjoy and experience Judaism in a non judgemental and enjoyable yet stimulating and challenging way.
There is also a great disconnect between college students and the "real" world, Chabad provides them with an opportunity to visit the sick and elderly and organize programs like our Toy Drive for sick children, making them aware and sensitive to the outside world.
