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.
