Going away to University is a priceless opportunity to mature and thrive intellectually, socially and politically.

For Jewish students it is also an opportunity to deepen and broaden one’s Jewish identity, and enhance the sense of commitment and responsibility to the greater Jewish community -- on campus, at home and throughout the world.

At Western, the Chabad House offers the anchor and embrace of ‘family’ for Jewish students regardless of background, observance or affiliation. It provides a safe haven in an ocean of uncertainty -- an address any Jewish student can turn to for any reason at all.

Walk into a Chabad House and you will be amazed, delighted, and encouraged by the mélange of students that come together for a few hours of real Jewish fellowship. We hope you will come and take part in our fellowship!
