Here at Chabad House, we pride ourselves on creating a "home away from home" for Jewish students at the University of Rochester.  Through diverse and dynamic programming, Chabad House creates a strong and vibrant Jewish community on campus.

We offer everything from weekly Shabbat dinner to engaging Jewish educational opportunities. We are happy to say that we are able to reach many Jewish students from all backgrounds and affiliations and inspire a positive connection to Judaism and Israel.

In addition, Chabad’s campus family, Rabbi Asher and Devorah Leah Yaras, open their home to dozens of students every week, welcoming them with the warmth of family. Their meaningful relationships with a broad spectrum of students are testimony to the Yaras' personalities and commitment.

If you'd like to stay up to date with the current happenings at Chabad, feel free to join our email list by  clicking here.

To contact Rabbi Asher or Devorah Leah, call (585) 503-9224, or email

You can make an immediate difference in the lives of students. With the demand for quality programming on at the rise, we invite you to consider partnering with Chabad House by making a gift today.
