Shabbat Dinner

After a stressful week of classes and papers, students at Columbia University know that Shabbat dinner provides the peaceful hiatus that is so needed. With delicious homemade food, song and spirit, Shabbat at Chabad is a highlight of Jewish life on campus. Starting September 3, Chabad will be offering Shabbat dinner in individually to go containers. Outdoor seating is available. Once our capacity is reached, additional reservations can be taken to go. Text "Shabbat" to 917-809-5339 or click on the link below to reserve. 

 

Cholent and Chill

Join us on Saturday afternoons for Cholent and Chill. Warm up over cholent (special stew made by our very own Rabbi Yuda), converse with fellow students, read a book on the couch or play a board game. We take the chill part seriously because after all, Shabbat is the day of rest! Reserve through the RSVP link to let us know that you’ll be joining us.

Coming back this Fall!

One on One Torah Study

Is there a Jewish topic you always wanted to explore but never had a chance to? Are there Torah classes that you can’t attend because of your school schedule? Sign up to learn one on one with Rabbi Yuda or Naomi and we will do our best to find a time that works for you.

 

Mezuzah Bank

A Mezuzah is a little scroll which has inscribed in it the words of the Shema prayer. It is hung on the doorposts of Jewish homes and is a source of God’s protection and a display of Jewish pride. With the Mezuzah Bank, Chabad at Columbia University lends students Mezuzot for their dorm rooms. Sign up to receive yours and we’ll hang it up together.
