Lawlawland, Chabad is an orthodox Jewish organisation (non converting or anything of the sort) that has a worldwide huge outreach movement to provide a Jewish base for Jews no matter where in the world they may be. They do amazing work, and there is one EVERYWHERE. And I mean that. If you go to Chabad.org you'll see.
It's a great suggestion. I'm actually co-President of my campus (Oxford University) Chabad Society and I'm so happy to be involved. I'm not very orthodox myself, but i really love going and learning about Judaism, hearing lectures and celebrating holidays. And I'll definitely be there tonight for Shabbat dinner. Who could say no to Challah?
I randomly met the Chabad rabbi at Berkeley when I visted, because it was orientation and there were stalls everywhere. The rabbi seemed pretty despondent about Berkeley Jewry. He was scarily adamant: 'go anywhere, Penn, NYU, LA, but don't come to Berkeley'. That's what freaked me out a bit. But I _am_ going to Berkeley, so we shall see whether his warning was warranted. I know there is a big anti-Israel movement in Berkeley (I know that being Jewish doesn't necessarily mean you support Israel, but I do, and I am Israeli).... I am optimistic about it.
