Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Jewish Owl family!

Going away to college is a priceless opportunity to mature and thrive intellectually, socially and politically.

For Jewish students it is also an opportunity to deepen and broaden one's Jewish identity, and enhance the sense of commitment and responsibility to the greater Jewish community - on campus, at home, across America and throughout the world.

Here, at Chabad at Rice, we pride ourselves on creating a "home away from home" for Jewish students at Rice University. We open our home weekly to all Jewish students, welcoming them with the warmth of family. We strive to create meaningful relationships with a broad spectrum of students and offer a plethora of events and opportunities.

We understand that as a parent, there can be many worrisome moments while your child is away at college.

That's why we want you to know that we're here. Feel free to contact us, introduce yourselves and let us know how we can help. 

Rabbi Shmuli and Nechama Slonim
