New Chabad Center at Sarah Lawrence College

Wisdom with understanding,” the motto of Sarah Lawrence College, fits perfectly with the ideals of Chabad, which is opening a center at the Bronxville campus in time for the 2012 fall semester.

Rabbi Sruli and Mushka Deitsch will begin their activities as full Chabad representatives, where they will introduce a variety of Jewish educational and social programs for the Jewish student body of this liberal arts college.

Rated the “College with the Best Discussions” by The Princeton Review, SLC’s academic structure combines small seminar classes with individual, biweekly student-faculty conferences, giving SLC’s 1,670 students the opportunity to develop very close relationships with their professors.

“We want to recreate the successful round table experience the students enjoy in college, in our programming. Our goal is to foster a close relationship with the students, and engage them in interactive discussions on Jewish themes.” But in its 2011 assessment of the Best 373 Colleges, The Princeton Review also rated SLC the nation’s least religious campus, creating an interesting challenge that Rabbi and Mrs. Deitsch see as an opportunity.
