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 committment and responsibility to the greater Jewish community – on campus, at home, across America and throughout the world.
Here, at Chabad, we pride ourselves on creating a “home away from home” for Jewish students at MIT. We open our home weekly to many students, welcoming them with the warmth of family. We strive to create meaningful relationships with a broad spectrum of students.
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.

Is your child under the weather and you feel far away?
Here at Chabad we are one big family and nothing makes us happier than to meet students' parents, sibling, and anyone who is special to them.
Are you visiting your child for the weekend? Or just for the day? Give us a call and let us know you're in town. We'd love to meet you!
We know it's hard for you to be away from your child during his or her birthday, which is why we offer you the opportunity to order a cake or sponsor a Shabbat dinner, and send a special message for your child.
If there is anything we can offer your child or any way we can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact us.
