It's our core belief that every individual Jew has an indispensable contribution to make to the totality of the Jewish people. Predicated on the Mitzvah of "Ahavat Yisrael - love of a fellow Jew," Chabad seeks to engage fellow Jews at their own pace and comfort level through innovative educational programs in all areas of Jewish life.

Among our programs, we host weekly Shabbat Services and dinner that celebrate Shabbat in a spiritual and intellectually religiouse stimulating manner. Creative Holiday programs on campus raise Jewish consciousness and knowledge throughout the community. Lectures and classes on Jewish law, philosophy, and ethics, teach the relevance and share the beauty and depth of our heritage to our leadership community. We continue to meet with students individually around the clock.

Our efforts to engage the unaffiliated, and increase the opportunities for the affiliated, have been met with incredible success. For many, Friends of Lubavitch London  and the Chabad at Western has been their first positive Jewish experience. Leaders on campus have expressed wonder at Friends of Lubavitch Chabad's ability to seamlessly bring together a diverse community of undergraduates, graduates and Jews of all backgrounds on an ongoing basis. Thousands of students have had their connection to Judaism deepened because of our programs.

Being that we interact primarily with a student community, we provide all our programs and services free of charge. No one is ever turned away. The support for our programs comes solely from alumni, parents and friends.
