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.

You are invited to participate. Register here to join our email list to get involved. We look forward to welcoming you at the Chabad House, at any of our programs on campus, or just to meet over coffee.
