Shalom! Welcome to the Chabad Jewish Student Center of UCR.


Chabad of UCR is home away from home for hundreds of Jewish students at the University of California Riverside (UCR) and surrounding academic institutions. Our aim is to engage students spiritually, socially, and educationally through enriching existing programs and providing new opportunities. At Chabad, all students are welcome, regardless of background, affiliation, and level of observance.

Leadership: Students are encouraged to take leadership roles in their campus communities, helping foster the creation of the next generation of empowered Jewish leadership.

Tradition: Chabad of UCR provides students a plethora of opportunities to discover the warmth and beauty of their Jewish heritage, and learn to apply timeless Jewish principles in today's modern world.

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: Labels are for clothing, not people. We believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to achieving unity, regardless of one's background or affiliations. For there to be a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today!

Chabad of UCR, creating a Jewish tomorrow... today!
