Welcome, New Students and Families!

Allow us to be among the first to welcome you to Harvard and wish you a huge mazel tov on your acceptance!

Harvard Chabad is here to help you learn about the Jewish student experience at Harvard, share opportunities to get involved before and when you get to Cambridge, and provide connections for new Jewish students and their parents to meet each other.

Above all, we want to get to know you and be a resource to you throughout your time at Harvard especially as a first-year student!

If you are an incoming Jewish student or the parent of an incoming Jewish student, please share your contact information with the Harvard Chabad team by filling out this form!

On the form, you will also have the option to join the Jewish Harvard Student WhatsApp Group ’28 or the Jewish Harvard Parent WhatsApp Group ’28.

We invite you to browse our site and familiarize yourself with the many programs and services of Harvard Chabad.

Leaving home is exciting, but it can be scary too. It doesn’t have to be. Not when you know you have Chabad waiting for you on the other side with its doors and heart wide open!

Chabad offers a compelling, rich, and meaningful Jewish experience to all. We invite you to visit and spend a Shabbat at Harvard Chabad to experience it yourself.

Please contact us if you have any questions or for more information.
