The Chabad Jewish Center at Temple University is one of over 100 on-site Chabad on Campus centers across America. We offer the anchor and embrace of 'family' for Jewish students regardless of background, observance or affiliation. Consider our address one you can turn to for any reason at all 24 hours a day.
Chabad activity on campus is not limited to what goes on at the Chabad Center. Chabad is inherently extroverted, and an active and highly visible presence throughout campus, reaching out to Jewish students through tabling, holiday celebrations, and at dorms and Greek Houses.
Tradition: At Lubavitch-Chabad, students have the ability to discover the warmth and beauty of their heritage, and learn to apply the timeless Jewish principle of Ahavat Israel.
Community: We believe that family and community are vital keys to character building. That's why we open our home to students, helping inspire them with a respect for family values and a deep meaningful concern for the land of Israel.
Future: We believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today. For there to be a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today!
