Got Questions? You may be Jewish :)

We’ve compiled a bunch of questions that we’ve received over the years along with answers from some of our brightest and finest scholars here at Chabad UD. Hope this helps!

Still have questions? Feel free to send us a message or you can live chat with someone from our team by clicking the chat head in the bottom right hand corner of your screen :)

  • How do you make instant coffee?
    Follow the instructions on the package.​
  • Are you guys on or off campus?
    Chabad is located on S College Ave across from Laurel Hall and is a 3 minute walk from Morris Library.
  • Is there Kosher food on campus or in the immediate area?
    Yes there is! UD is one of the proud campuses that offers Kosher meal plans for students year round. However, they do NOT provide a Kosher for Passover meal plan as of yet. Thankfully, Shulie is a pretty awesome person and cooks delicious homemade meals for anyone interested in Chabad’s #KforP meal plan.

  • I heard the food at Chabad has a 5 Star Michelin rating...is that true?​
    Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. Shulie’s food actually broke the world renowned Michelin Taste Gauge (patent pending) for exceeding its capacities….so it doesn’t technically have the 5 star rating - but you catch our drift.
  • So, what’s Chabad’s plan at UD?"
    Well, we love having a good time, so the plan is a simple and sweet one. To be a true home away from home for all Jewish students at UD as well as the broader student community. We plan to accomplish this by providing a whole bunch of different programming. From delicious homemade Shabbat meals (see above) to weekly classes, from BBQs to discussion groups, or just chilling and hanging out at our place while meeting other Jewish students.

  • But I am not religious AT ALL, can I still come?"
    Absolutely! At Chabad we encourage everyone to leave their labels by the door. You don't have to be religious in order to be Jewish and you don't have to be Jewish to be a good person. That's that.
  • I mean, I don't practice or know anything about Judaism besides knowing that I'm Jewish... still?"
    See previous answer :)
  • It sounds very nice and all, but practically... How much does it cost?"
    Just bring yourself and lots of friends. We’ll cover the tab.
  • If students don’t pay for events, how does Chabad support itself?"
    Each Chabad center is financially independent, hence it's supported by the community it serves. In our case that means parents/grandparents of students, alumni, and local community members. All contributions, donations and funding for Chabad UD stays at Chabad UD for its own programming and services. No funds are received from or sent to Chabad Headquarters. To contribute please click here.
  • Wait, but, can a current student still give a donation?"
    Sure. However it's not required or expected whatsoever!
  • Does Chabad support Israel?
    Chabad is deeply involved in defending Israel and its right to exist, throughout all its boundaries. Many Chabadniks serve in the IDF and others contribute practical and spiritual support to the troops. Chabad has over 150 centers in Israel, as well as dozens of educational facilities around the country. Lubavitch trained Rabbis often complete their training is Israeli yeshivot (our very own Rabbi Avremel did just that actually). The Rebbe himself encouraged support of the UJA.
  • Does Chabad have a Birthright trip to Israel?
    Yeah baby! Click here to learn more about why YOU want to be on the next trip.
