Our Mission

Chabad on Campus SF is one of over 130 on-site campus Chabad centers across the globe. We embrace the 'family' of Jewish students regardless of background, observance or affiliation. We anticipate and serve the needs of students and faculty on a social, educational and spiritual level, and serve as a home-away-from-home for Jewish students in the area. We strive to build an inclusive Jewish environment where everyone is welcomed. We seek to develop accessible and meaningful Jewish experiences to engage members of the S. Francisco student community. We believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today.

Chabad on Campus SF is based on the ideology of Chabad Chassidism, which has at its foundation, the encompassing mitzvah “to love every Jew as one loves oneself”. Our goal is to permeate that love with Acts of Kindness and Mitzvahs. We tirelessly deliver a universal message: each person is invaluable and has a direct and powerful ability to bring wholeness and peace to the world.
