The mission of the Rohr Chabad Student Network of Ottawa is to offer Jewish university students genuine Jewish experiences in a warm, welcoming, and caring environment. The CSN caters to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the Jewish students on campus by providing a multitude of opportunities for exploring, practicing, and enjoying Judaism.

The CSN recognizes the unique challenges facing Jewish university students today, and works hard to help students overcome them. One the greatest threats facing the Jewish nation today is apathy, which can lead to assimilation and loss of Jewish identity.  

With innovative programming, stimulating topics of discussion, and a relaxed atmosphere of food, fun and friends, the Chabad Student Network, along with the 400 other Chabad Houses on campuses throughout the world, have been successful at getting students to see Judaism as enjoyable, meaningful, and inspiring.
