What is Chabad on Campus?

Chabad on Campus is the meeting place where young adults from the Netherlands’ Jewish community meet, relationships develop and friendships for life are formed.

The origin of Chabad on Campus

What started as a small organization that focused specifically on students in 2012, now has grown into a national community with separate departments for students, Young Professionals and Dutch and expat families.

The organization consists a rabbinate, youth workers, coaches, student board, foundation board, as well as a diverse group of advisors and donors who who capacitate the work of Chabad on Campus through advice and financial support.

Reason to be

Interconnection is the foundation of a community. Chabad on Campus offers a wide range of activities for Jewish students, Young Urban Professionals and other interested Jewish parties. Our activities offer Jewish participants the opportunity to meet each other, broaden their horizon and expand their network.

In response to social developments, such as secularization and individualism, many people are looking for meaning. Chabad on Campus, rooted in the Jewish religion, could help answer questions such as "What is the purpose of life" or "What is the meaning of my existence?"

Chabad on Campus’ financial basis

The work of Chabad on Campus is financed by over a hundred individuals and organisations though monthly and yearly donations. .
