Why should Jewish students attend Tulsa? Chabad in Tulsa is committed to serving the Jewish students at TU (and also Oklahoma State University) in every way that we can. Over the past three decades, we have been fortunate to be a real presence in the lives of many students and faculty at the university. We provide Shabbat hospitality, inclusion in holiday celebrations, and lots of kosher food. In addition to the locals, we have students from numerous other countries that attend school here. Brazil and South America are the greatest international contributors to the Jewish student population. Chabad provides fun and meaningful targeted programming for TU on a regular basis. We also regularly partner with Hillel. The rabbi and rebbetzin are always available to serve as a solid support, listening ear, and soft shoulder for students. Chabad continues to be a real resource that students at the University of Tulsa can count on at any time. — Rabbi Yehuda Weg, Chabad — Tulsa, Oklahoma
