Welcome Freshmen! 

 You've finally made it; college life! This is a very exciting  time. The next 4/5 years will define who you will be as a person for the rest of your life. In so many ways your university years influence your personality, from the classes you take to the friends you make, from the nightlife to your Jewish experience.

"Jewish experience?" you ask, "that wasn't on my to-do list at Penn State".

Well then, welcome to Chabad of Penn State. You're soon to find out that doing Jewish at Penn State is the next big thing on the block. For starters, being part of the coolest community on campus gives you a warm "home away from home" and a sense of "fraternity", excuse the pun. If done right, it will enlighten you and answer some of the most pressing questions you'll have during this new phase in your life.


Shabbat and Holidays

Celebrating Shabbat at Penn State is one of the greatest experiences you can have. Friday night begins with a lively service, followed by a delicious four course home-made dinner, accompanied with stories, songs and friendship!
