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.

Scholar in residence,Mr. Martin Lowenberg enthralled students with the stories of his life & in his insights as a holocaust survivor of 5 concentration camps.
Friday afternoon,shortly before candle lighting, he affixed a mezuzah to the front door of Chabad which was encased in a cover he had fashioned. The base was made of wood that had come from a cattle car used to transport Jews during the Holocaust to their deaths.
"I cannot think of a more appropriate place for this historic mezuzah than the Chabad Center, a robust center for Jewish life serving thousands of Jewish students" said Lowenberg. "I want every student to kiss this Mezuzah and never forget it's message: Am Yisroel Chai
