Rabbi Sruly & Mrs. Shlomit Epstein - Formerly residents of Brooklyn N.Y., Rabbi and Mrs. Epstein moved to South Carolina in early 2015 to open a Chabad House that would cater to the growing number of Jewish Students at the University of South Carolina.
In the early 1950s, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory, began sending rabbinical students to campuses to serve as a resource for students. Since the 1960s, Chabad campus centers open their doors to every Jewish student regardless of background or observance level. Programming always reflects tolerant, non-judgmental and open discussions, which is the hallmark of Chabad's inclusiveness.
Here at Chabad of Univeristy of South Carolina, we believe that Jewish education and meaningful experiences are the grass-roots method to fighting indifference, apathy and assimilation that face our community today. For there to be a Jewish tomorrow, our students need to have a Jewish today!
