Welcome to Chabad at University of Tampa, your home away from home.
At Chabad, students have the ability to discover the warmth and beauty of their heritage, and learn to apply the timeless Jewish principle of Ahavat Israel – at their own pace.
We believe that family and community are vital keys to character building. That’s why we open our home to students to help inspire them with a respect for family values.
We believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today. For there to be a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today!
We look forward to personally welcoming you.
Rabbi Levi & Chana Rivkin
Here’s what Students say about Chabad
Chabad means to me a home away from home, and the ability to connect with people that have the same roots as me. The only times I ever did Shabbat was at camps, but doing it every week has made me realize that I might want to start this at home.
– President of Chabad on Campus
Chabad to me means family, tradition, and learning. As a student at UT, Chabad was a special place where I could observe my Jewish upbringing in a non-judgmental zone. It reminded me of home and of my family. Being at Chabad was like being with my family.
Chabad is a place where you can forget all distractions and focus on yourself. With so many things in college that are trying to pull your attention it is easy to get lost. At Chabad, you will find a close group of people who want to help you in anyway you need.
– Jeff Kurnek
