Further expanding on the services available to Jewish students worldwide and those studying abroad, the Chabad on Campus International Foundation recently announced that Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries would soon be opening new European campus operations.
While the new centers in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and other countries will offer programming such as Torah classes, Sabbath meals and holiday services in the local language, officials identified other demographics, such as the large numbers of American and Israeli Jewish participants in study abroad programs, as benefiting from the expansion.
More than 800 Chabad House directors and their children attended the four-day 11th annual campus emissaries conference in Stamford, Conn, representing 175 campuses where there are full-time operations and the hundreds more where partial services are provided. Workshops, lunch table discussions, dinner programs and general sessions explored such topics as improving Friday-night planning and maximizing alumni development to fundraising. The European announcement came during a Wednesday evening session that was open to Chabad on Campus supporters.
