Chabad CARES: It's how we stay emotionally close even when physically distant.

At the Chabad House, we are committed to providing you the fullest, warmest experience possible, customized to stay within the most recent safety guidelines. Given our new COVID-19 reality, we’ve developed a new, comprehensive program for the 2020/2021 Academic Year.


Read more here about our special opportunities for connection, Jewish experience, and growth as well as our health protocols.  

Keep an eye out for the Chabad CARES icon and banners around the website and around campus—they'll keep you in the loop on how your "home away from home" is adapting to make sure you feel that warmth, whatever the circumstances.

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
