Chalutzim, the Jewish Student Organization, is a diverse community in which students celebrate and learn about Judaism. We hold weekly Shabbat services (which vary from creative to tradition, musical to meditative, and with special emphases like "Queer Shabbat," "Learners Shabbat" or "Faculty Shabbat") as well as High Holy Day observances and all holiday celebrations that fall within the academic calendar (including an Eco-Feminist Tu B'Shevat event, a campus-wide Purim party, and a widely attended Passover Seder). Shabbat Table (dinner) is a weekly highlight. Imaginative and delicious food is cooked by rotating student teams in our beautiful Kosher Kitchen in the Joe Rosenfield '25 Campus Center which is also the location of the Chalutzim Student Lounge where we hold meetings, movie nights and other study breaks, and have a lot of fun creating a sense of connection and community. We offer a variety of student initiated social and cultural programming and, in conjunction with our Rabbi, we engage in educational programs that make Judaism meaningful both in tradition and in the world we live in today. Recent programs include a week-long symposium on "Judaism and Popular Culture" and a Conference on "Spiritual Radicalism: The Legacy of Abraham Joshua Heschel." We also participate in interfaith dialogue, multicultural activities, and promote diversity on campus. Our events and services are welcoming and open to everyone.
