Back to School Shabbat

Back to School Shabbat on Friday, August 26!

As the end of the summer holidays approaches and many people return from their holiday destinations to the – equally sunny – the Netherlands, we are preparing ourselves to welcome everyone again during our ‘Back to School Shabbat’!


On Friday evening 26 August at 19:00, Chabad on Campus opens its doors again for all Jewish students in the Netherlands. The ‘Back to School Shabbat’ is the perfect opportunity to catch up with other young Jews and share holiday stories or thoughts on the upcoming (study) year! This Friday evening also provides the perfect setting to meet new Dutch and international people while enjoying three courses, wine and kiddush.


So, if you want to celebrate the beginning of the new study year in a cheerful and accessible way, sign up for our ‘Back to School Shabbat’ at the bottom of this page!
