ABOUT CHABAD AT UNR

Mission Statement

Chabad at UNR is dedicated to providing every student regardless of background, philosophy or level of commitment, an open door environment for strengthening and enhancing Jewish life on campus. Chabad serves individuals looking for an anchor and non-judgmental, accepting, personalized Jewish experience.

Together we strive to foster a familial environment, emphasizing tradition and Jewish unity. Our goal is to create a place where every Jewish student, from any background and affiliation, feels welcome and accepted. Inspiring Jewish students to find themselves as Jews and progress continuously on a spiritual path, passing on Jewish traditions to family and friends. We focus on the individual as well as the collective and we promote active involvement in all things Jewish, as we encourage young Jews to form intra-religious relationships and enhance their Jewish identities.

The college years are a critical stage in development, when students exercise their independence and make many of the decisions that will help shape their lives. As a home away from home the Center offer students of all affiliations and backgrounds an opportunity to enhance their college years and experience the richness of their Jewish heritage. By participating in religious and social events, students meet other Jewish friends in a warm and inviting atmosphere and create friendships that will last a lifetime.

Stop by the Center any time for a discussion, a cup of coffee, a smile or a hello. Your Family is here to help you, whatever the need may be, that’s what we’re here for!

We look forward to seeing you soon, Go Pack!
