Dear Parents,

Going away to college is a priceless opportunity to mature and thrive intellectually, socially and politically.

For Jewish students it is also an opportunity to deepen and broaden one's Jewish identity, and enhance the sense of commitment and responsibility to the greater Jewish community - on campus, at home, across America and throughout the world.

Here, at the Chabad Jewish Student Center, we pride ourselves on creating a "home away from home" for Jewish students at the University of Wisconsin. We open our home weekly to hundreds of students, welcoming them with the warmth of family.

Our diverse and dynamic programming attract hundreds of Jewish students from a variety of backgrounds. 

Our Student Board helps empower students for leadership roles and responsibilities in the campus community and society-at-large. We are committed to helping students explore and optimize their leadership potential by offering students project leadership and meaningful responsibility.

We understand that as a parent, there can be many worrisome moments while your child is away at college. That's why we want you to know that we're here. Feel free to contact us, introduce yourselves and let us know what's on your mind. We'll be glad to assist in any way possible.

We invite you to come and visit us and see first - hand the warmth and Jewish pride your child experiences at Chabad at UW. We would be delighted for you to join us at one of our weekly Shabbat dinners. It's an experience that will stay with you... forever.

Chabad at UW is funded through its own fundraising campaigns and charitable giving of parents, alumni and many friends. Your support helps us continue our vital work, reaching thousands of Jewish students. Make a contribution today!  Thank you!

Looking forward to making your acquaintance, 

                                                                  Rabbi Mendel and Henya Matusof, directors of Chabad UW
