Mission and Values

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

Chabad of Clinton opened its doors in the fall of 2014 and immediately began offering social, educational, recreational and religious programming for students and faculty at Hamilton College, as well as the local Jewish community.

Chabad is home where all people are welcome, regardless of affiliation, denomination or lifestyle.

The vision is to create a home-away-from-home, where students can unwind..

To serve as an educational resource for the next generation of Jewish leaders and thinkers.

To encourage students to explore and deepen their Jewish identity through education, traditional service, and connection with Israel.

To become a model for engaging students in a way that recognizes the unique qualities of a small liberal arts community.

Our values include:

The welcoming of every Jew, creating a sense of belonging, Jewish learning, spiritual growth and practice.
