The Chabad Student Center is a home for Jewish celebration and a center for Jewish education adjacent to UCSC. The Rabbi/Director is Shlomie Chein.

If you're Jewish, and you're not sure what a Chabad House is then you should come for some Shabbat, because words can't describe a Shabbat dinner at the Chabad house. Don't be intimidated if you're not particularly observant, as they are very accepting of all. Devorah Leah (the Rabbi's wife) makes the very best food in all of Santa Cruz. What better way to start of the weekend then with a fabulous home cooked meal. But don't take my word for it. Come and see for yourself.

More about the Chabad Student Center:

True to the philosophy of (Chabad), and guided by the love, inspiration and blessings of the Rebbe, the Chabad Student Center at UCSC strives to enable, assist, and encourage, every Jew connected to this campus to grow in their own unique way and at their own indiviudal pace in the circle of the three loves: Love of your fellow; Love of your heritage; and Love of your G-d.

At Chabad we believe that these three loves are the secret to a better self, a better community, and a better world.

The Chabad Student Center is a unique organization that offers Judaism with a personal touch, provides a place where tradition meets trend, uses a style that fuses mysticism with modernity, and caters to a community while focusing on the personal needs of each individual.

The majority of our activities take place in the Chabad House. The Chabad House offers the perfect setting for hands-on experience and alternatives methods of higher education.

The Chabad Student Center creates programs that fuse academics with traditional Jewish teachings, brings qualified speakers to speak on new age issues through applying age old wisdom, organizes timely and accessible holiday and Shabbat events that provide an opportunity for faculty members, staff, and alumni to spend time together with gourmet food, intellectual discussion, and Jewish camaraderie.

For Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Unaffiliated and Any Jew That Moves:

The center opens its arms and hearts to all without a membership requirement, and is a place where Jews from all walks of life, regardless of background, affiliation or level of observance feel at home. We don't merely wait for the people to come to us; we go out and bring the joys of Judaism and the gifts of friendship to them. Through blending traditional values with contemporary techniques, we are able to help people connect to their roots as they discover meaning in living Jewishly. With a wide range of educational programs, services, holiday events, lectures series, one-on-one opportunities and social outings, the center offers Judaism on every level, thus ensuring Jewish pride, continuity and identity for each member of our community.
