The Heart of Jewish Life on Campus - Foundation for the Jewish Gator Nation

Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student Center is a not-for-profit corporation and federally approved 501(c) (3) organization. All donations are tax deductible. EIN-59-3652042

The Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center is founded on the principle that, while Jews embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jewish students − no labels, no affiliations − to enhance the experience of being Jewish, to learn, to grow and feel at home.

We serve as a home away from home and offer a nonjudgmental, warm family atmosphere. We are one address where every student can turn to for everything from a homemade bowl of chicken soup Friday night to an educational class or a philosophical discussion during the week. On a personal level, we are available 24/7 for counseling or just a welcoming friendly chat. Our pledge is to touch the heart of each boy and girl, thus increasing their knowledge and commitment in the world and to humanity.

Our vitality and continued growth is made possible only by the support we receive from alumni, parents, friends and partners like you. We hope we can count on you just as the students and community count on us. Every contribution, both large and small, is vital and welcome. As the Talmud says “Each and every penny adds up to a large amount.” Please donate a tax-deductible contribution today; it will provide the financial assurance to continue our vital work and is a great opportunity to give Tzedakah-Charity and support Jewish Life and Learning at UF, SFC and Alachua County. Go Gators!

Thank you for your friendship and support!
