With the Jewish holiday of Passover coming up at the end of March, we want to assure parents and students that there will be Pesach Seder options for campus. We will work with campus regulations to ensure that students wishing to celebrate the holiday will be able to do so. As we get closer we will give more information. Please reach out and message us with specific concerns you may have. A safe and happy upcoming Passover to all!

When you go home for Thanksgiving, take some time to remember someone in your family or in your neighborhood who may not be able to celebrate because they are alone or ill.
Give them a call.
Invite them if you can but at least wish them a meaningful day if you cannot.
They will be thankful that you thought of them !
A better world, one good deed at a time!
Thank you IGU for baking Challah to share with the nursing homes and for creating beautiful Thanksgiving and Chanukah cards to distribute to elderly friends!!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember to give thanks!!!

UMass Helping Hands is inviting small pods ( students with whom you live or interact as a safe group) to attend in person community service projects or accept a community service project kit to be completed in your dorm or apartment. These kits are craft oriented and will be shared with local residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Message Yocheved Adelman if you would like to be part of this project.

Been hard not visiting at our local nursing homes. We miss our real " senior" friends!
Helping Hands is starting a " Caring Card" project. Students in pods, cohorts or with roommates can receive a box from Helping Hands with cards that can be filled with warm messages, snacks for sustenance while they write and decorative stickers to add a finishing touch to the correspondence!
Message Yocheved Adelman to request a box.
We drop off and pick up.
Bring a smile to real senior's face!

A young man who dedicated his life to helping others was tragically taken from us. Let us perpetuate his mission by creating a mentorship program for young people. Everyone needs a shoulder to lean on, a listening ear and a warm receptive heart.
Be a part of that light. Thank you!

With all the changes to the UMass Amherst attendance plan, UMass Chabad would like to make sure we can still help fill the needs of Jewish students who will be in the area in off campus housing or in the limited dorm availability.

Please reach out to us to provide a Shabbat kit to help students celebrate Shabbat in their own space, or to attend a small in person socially distant Shabbat dinner.

Chabad is also formulating plans to help students hear the Shofar for Rosh Hashanah, as well as provide free pre- fast and post fast Yom Kippur foods and arrange covid safe ways to celebrate Sukkot.

Please reach out if we can be helpful in any way for any UMass student in the area.
Working together for UMass.

UMass Chabad, which serves both Jewish students and the general student population on campus, will be offering fall programming in accordance with state and campus recommendations.
UMass Chabad will continue to provide for the religious needs of Jewish students on campus through social distancing for in person Shabbat and holiday prayer services, providing kosher dining opportunities for Shabbat and holidays either in a socially distant setting or by pre-arranged pick up or delivery and by offering Jewish cultural and educational classes which will be arranged online or in person in small group settings.
The Helping Hands Community Service Program for all UMass students will continue to provide opportunities for students to show care and concern for elderly residents of Amherst in both safe and authentic ways.
UMass Chabad will also continue its program of delivering soup and other comfort foods to students who are sick both on and off campus.
The staff at UMass Chabad are available at any time to meet in person or speak by telephone with any students in need of support of any kind.
Parents are invited to be in touch with UMass Chabad before and during school if we can be of help to their student.
Working together we can help keep our students, staff and the wider community as safe as possible.
