Harvard Friends of Chabad

Purpose Statement

Harvard Chabad is a home away from home for every Jew on campus. A place where students of all backgrounds and degrees of observance can enjoy exploring the Jewish heritage in a warm, welcoming and non-judgmental environment. Chabad seeks to engage fellow Jews at their own pace and comfort level through innovative programs in all areas of Jewish life. Among our programs, we host weekly Shabbat dinners that provide students an elegant setting in which to meet new friends from every niche of the Harvard campus, experience the beauty of Jewish life and community, and explore and deepen their Jewish identity. Our creative holiday programs on the Harvard campus raise Jewish consciousness and pride throughout the university. Our lectures and classes on Jewish law, philosophy, and ethics, teach the relevance and depth of our heritage to our leadership community.
