Chabad UK Takes Initiative; Explores Dealing With Anti-Semitism on British Campuses

Despite Anti-Semitism on UK Campuses, Jewish Activity Gains Momentum

Twenty six men and women, Chabad Shluchim representing almost every major campus in the UK, met earlier this week to discuss vital issues confronting Jewish students today.

The two-day conference took place at Chabad of Bloomsbury’s new students’ center in Central London with the participation of Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, vice chairman of Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters, Rabbi Nachman Sudak OBE, Head of Chabad-Lubavitch UK and Rabbi Eli Brackman, Chairman of Chabad on Campus UK.  

Rabbi Shmuel Lew, who together with Rabbi Faivish Vogel was a founder of Chabad UK’s pioneering work on campus since the 1960’s also attended, as did Dr Tali Loewenthal.

 Anti-Semitism on campus and the stress students encounter during exam periods were among some of the issues explored. The representatives also discussed the launch of a three-week Israel educational trip during the summer break for Jewish students, and the Chabad on Campus UK website: www.chabadoncampus.org.

Mr. David Slager was noted for his support and partnership in the growth of Chabad on Campus UK to better served the 10,000 Jewish students across the UK, providing a warm and loving home.
