About Us




Welcome to Chabad House at UCLA – serving the Jewish students and faculty of UCLA for almost 40 years! 

What is Chabad House at UCLA? It is a home-away-from home for thousands of Jewish students at the University of California, Los Angeles. 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 our affiliated student groups, students are invited to take leadership roles in their campus community, helping to foster the creation of the next generation of empowered and vibrant 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 principle of Ahavat Israel, loving a fellow Jew - at their own pace.

Community: We believe that family and community are vital keys to character building. That is 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.withmatis177.jpg

Vision: We believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today. To ensure a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today!
