Serving hundreds of Jewish students in close to ten of the city’s arts and music programs, Chabad combines traditional Jewish programming with innovative arts projects. With family-style Shabbat meals and thought-provoking learning opportunities, Chabad is the place for Jewish arts students to connect with Judaism and express their artistic abilities.

Thanks to Chabad, students at the University of the Arts, , Moore College of Art and Design, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Curtis Institute of Music, the Art Institute of Philadelphia, and others finally have a place to hear the shofar on Rosh Hashanah and eat matzah at a Passover Seder. At city schools that lack campus life and even student unions, Chabad is the only space devoted to Jewish life for students in Center City.
