What is the Chabad House? Chabad house is a home-away-from home for thousands of Jewish Students at Penn State. Chabad anticipates and serves the needs of students on a social, educational and spiritual level. At Chabad, all students are welcome, regardless of background, affiliation, and level of observance. 


Leadership: At Chabad and our affiliated student group, students are invited to take leadership roles in their campus communities, helping foster the creation of the next generation of empowered Jewish leadership. 

Tradition: At Chabad, students have the ability to discover the warmth and beauty of their heritage, and learn to apply the timeless Jewish principles of Ahavat Israel and Tikkun Olam - at their own pace.

Community: At Chabad, we believe that family and community are vital keys to character building. That’s why we open our home to students, helping inspire them with a respect for family values and a deep meaningful concern for the land of Israel.

Future: At Chabad, we believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting the forces of indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today. For there to be a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today!
