We can’t record the priceless scenes as hundreds of students fill the Chabad Center to celebrate Shabbat and Jewish holidays. It is impossible to track the friendships forged, the confidences exchanged, the laughs shared, the lessons absorbed, and the inspiration gleaned. But we do invite you to scroll through the thousands of pics and view the footage in our gallery to get an idea of the constant buzz of activity at Chabad.

All in for Israel

Chabad students never cease to think about the wider Jewis community. To benefit the victims of the fires that swept through Israel some time ago, students organized an elegant game night at Chabad which was well attended, roundly enjoyed and raised some good money, Kol Hakavod!
