About Us - Chabad Jewish Student Centre - Vancouver

About Us

Chabad Jewish Student Centre - Vancouver serves the Jewish student population at UBC, SFU and local community colleges.

We are part of a network of over 250+ Chabad centers on campuses worldwide. Chabad campus center programming reflects a tolerant, non-judgmental environment, where open dialogue is welcome, and is a hallmark of Chabad's inclusiveness.

We strive to create a "home away from home" for all Jews on campus, a place where Jews of all backgrounds can find community, resources, a smorgasbord of Jewish events and rich opportunities for celebration and study. We want to ensure that all Jewish students graduate as stronger, more empowered Jews.

Chabad is located at 1867 Acadia Rd. Click here for a map!
