Chabad’s mission is to provide and create a safe, warm, vibrant Jewish environment for every Jew at William & Mary, Williamsburg, and the Virginia peninsula with unconditional love and concern for every Jew, regardless of background or affiliation enabling each individual to explore, discover, and connect with their Judaism at their own pace and in alignment with their unique personality.

Chabad’s programming and initiatives are designed to foster Jewish education, awareness, and engagement, providing a profound connection to our rich heritage. By exploring and experiencing our Jewish traditions, we bridge the past, present, and future, empowering individuals to deepen their understanding and practice of Judaism.

Chabad serves individuals and families looking for a non-judgmental, accepting, personalized Jewish experience.

Chabad encourages positive action on the part of each Jew and offers its educational programs to all Jewish organizations, synagogues and groups in its efforts to increase Jewish knowledge and practice.

Chabad offers “Judaism with a Smile” and a home away from home for everyone who walks through its doors.
