Chabad GW - Lubavitch Jewish Student Center is a Jewish organization on campus that seeks to promote Jewish identity, education and celebration.
Chabad GW's programming includes lively and inspirational Shabbat dinners, engaging classes on Torah, Kabala and prayer and meaningful celebration of Jewish holidays. Their warm and welcoming atmosphere enables every Jewish student on campus to experience Judaism on a level he or she is comfortable with.
