Abbe Center

Located at 764 S. Main Street, the Abbe Center for Jewish Life houses nine students, features separate kosher-style and kosher kitchens, and serves as the main gathering place for Jewish life on campus.

Project made possible through a lead gift from Trustee Richard K. Abbe '92 and his wife Merav.

Conveniently located across the street from Temple Beth-El.

The Wasserman Kosher Kitchen was named in honor of Tina Wasserman, kosher chef and author, by her husband Trustee Richard L. Wasserman '70.

The home's spacious living and dining space make it ideal for gatherings.
