Chabad WashU proudly hosts a complete Shabbat experience – each week!

We host Shabbat services every Friday evening and Shabbat day. Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat tends to include a lot of singing. We call it “Kotel Style.” Immediately afterwards, 200+ students attend the family-style Shabbat dinner. A wonderful land diverse group of students choose to participate, together building the campus community. Prospective students, parents, professors, and other guests often join as well. This event is the largest gathering of Jewish students at WashU each week.

Shabbat dinners are sponsored by families, alumni, and community members who help provide these festive meals to students at no charge. Guests, including prospective students, parents, and alumni, are requested to RSVP on our site and contribute >$22 per meal at

After services conclude on Shabbat morning, the “Shabbos lunch community” comes together to enjoy a delicious and festive weekly meal at Chabad. 
The Chabad House is open all Shabbos for students to lounge, grab a bite to eat, and hang out! About an hour before the conclusion of Shabbos, students gather for a light meal and soulful singing, which are followed by Maariv and Havdalah.
