About Us

Welcome to the Rohr Chabad House - serving the Jewish community at Tufts University and beyond. 

The Chabad House is a thriving center for Jewish life, well known for its warmth and acceptance of all. Chabad has become a central part of student life at Tufts, bringing together Jews from all backgrounds and styles of observance to enjoy and learn about Judaism. 

Its cozy, friendly atmosphere has earned the Chabad House a reputation as "your home away from home," where students love to spend time, relax, and experience a Judaism that is lively, meaningful, and enjoyable.

We look forward to personally welcoming you at the Chabad House, where you will find warmth, wisdom, and a great time at a house you can call your own!



Rabbi Tzvi and Chanie Backman
