MAMASH! CHABAD was a seed planted in Center City in August of 2010, upon the recognition of the lack of any Jewish student center in downtown Philadelphia. Originally focused on the underserved populations at the city’s arts colleges, the Chabad House quickly and organically grew into a hub of Jewish life for the graduate/medical students and young professionals living in the city.
Through its open door policy and hundreds of events 52 weeks a year, MAMASH! CHABAD has cultivated a tight-knit, yet open community that has new attendees coming weekly as word grows of its lively Friday night meals, classes, BBQs, holidays events and many more program offerings. The Chabad House prides itself on being an inclusive environment, where Jews from every background experience the beauty of Judaism together, making new friends and having a space to gather with their peers.
