About Chabad at GMU

What is Chabad? Chabad at GMU is a home-away-from home for all Jewish Students at George Mason University. 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. (Visit our What to expect page.)

Tradition: At Chabad, students have the ability to discover the warmth and beauty of their heritage- at their own pace.

Community: 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: We believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today. For there to be a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today! (Visit our Donations page.)
