"These doors should always remain open to educate, inspire and counsel."

- the Lubavitcher Rebbe


Among our programs, we host weekly Shabbat dinners that provide Jewish students with an intimate setting in which to eat, meet new friends from every niche of the Hamilton campus, and celebrate Shabbat in a spiritual and intellectual stimulating manner. Creative Holiday programs at Hamilton College raise Jewish consciousness and pride throughout the community. Lectures and classes on Jewish law, philosophy, and ethics, teach the relevance and share the beauty and depth of our heritage to our leadership community.


But most importantly, we continue to meet with students individually around the clock.

Matzah Ball Tuesdays

Because no student should ever be left without matzah ball soup in the winter time.

Warm your spirit, warm your heart. Every Tuesday in the coldest days of winter, at 4 pm, you'll find a hot pot of chicken soup on campus, with some lovely students offering you a bowl to go.

It's free. Because we love you!

Lunch and Learn

Come and join a weekly discussion with Devorah. Enjoy discussions on a variety of Jewish topics, while enjoying a delicious lunch.

Sunday BLT (Bagel, Lox and Tefilin)

Spend one hour on Sundays to perform an ancient Jewish mitzvah, the binding of the Tefilin. Follow it by another old (maybe a little younger) Jewish tradition of eating bagel, lox and cream cheese on a Sunday morning!

Each week will include a 15 minute discussion on a mystical element of the mitzvah of Tefilin and how they can be relevant to your life!


Just because you're away from home for the Holidays, doesn't mean your Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur shouldn't be inspiring..... or your Chanukah as bright....or you Passover as enjoyable with the warmth of family....

Chabad is your family at every major and minor Holiday!

You don't celebrate the Holidays at home? You're welcome to learn more about them at Chabad! All our services and observances are beginner-friendly. You will enjoy, guaranteed!
