About
Chabad offers a vibrant and nurturing community where hundreds of students choose to engage in Jewish life! A welcoming and vibrant community, Chabad is a wonderful way for students to experience Judaism while in college.

We provide a plethora of Jewish opportunities for the campus community, including family-style Shabbat dinners that typically attract well over a hundred students, along with educational classes, social programs and pro-Israel activities. We have facilitated Birthright Israel trips for more than 1000 WashU students. Through the Chabad Student Association, we offer students the opportunity to lead our programs. As part of the campus safety net, our professional team helps provide support, guidance and referrals.

Chabad also offers programs and resources for graduate students as part of the JGrads initiative. Students at local colleges, including UMSL, SLU, Webster U., and St. Louis Community College, are supported by The Network.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Chabad House, at any of our programs on campus, or just to meet over coffee.

Daily Thought
Along the path to Torah is the splitting of the sea. What is the sea? It is the thick blanket of materialism that smothers the fire of your divine soul. A miracle comes, splits the sea, and the truth is revealed beneath your feet. Now you can receive Torah. But don’t imagine you can cling to a coarse, material perception of this world and append to it a Torah consciousness. An entire sea of delusion must part and the world must be seen for what it truly is: A divine emanation ever awaiting miracles. Acharon Shel Pesach 5734. Sefer Hasichot 5751 vol. 2, pg. 857.
