"'Love thy neighbor as thyself...' This is the entire basis of Judaism." - Hillel (Talmudic sage)

And it's the basis of Chabad of Clinton as well.

  • Hamilton ChaBoard

    Chabad's Student Leadership is the engine behind Chabad's success. Chabad at Hamilton College has become a center for Jewish life and these are the students who make it happen:

  • Lay Leadership

    Chabad is managed by a Board of Officers. Chabad also has an Advisory Board that oversees certain policies and procedures.

  • Meet the Waks Family

    Rabbi Didy and Devorah Waks and their two children, Mendel and Yetta, moved to Clinton, NY, to establish a Chabad Center to serve the Jewish community of Hamilton College and the greater Utica area. Many blessings have come their way since then, including the addition of Nissi to the family!

  • Mission and Values

    The philosophy is simple. Invite every Jew, regardless of his or her Jewish background, to become part of a warm community.

  • What You Can Expect

    A home away from home where all are welcome no matter background or affiliation.
