The Chai Society


Wagner College, founded in 1883, takes pride in the diversity of its students and its service to the community. Today, Wagner College continues to build on this longstanding commitment by recruiting students from all groups: religious, ethnic, racial, sexual, demographic, and cultural. The Chai Society at Wagner College, established in 2004, is dedicated to strengthening the ties between the College and the Jewish community. Through its support for academic studies and co-curricular activities, the Chai Society promotes knowledge and understanding of the richness of the Jewish experience.

The Chai Society is facilitated through the joint efforts of Wagner College's Office of Institutional Advancement; the Chai Society Steering Committee; and Rabbi Dr. Abraham Unger, assistant professor and director of urban programs at Wagner College.
