HEAR IT FROM THEM

ALWAYS THERE FOR ME

A Thankful Student | Nikki Katz, Class of 2019

From Chicago, Illinois

Chabad most certainly enhances my

college experience at Elon. Despite

the hurricanes, snow storms, and

stressful course loads throughout this

fall semester, Chabad has been there

for me through it all.

Before coming to Chabad, I didn’t

really observe Shabbat—now it is

one of my favorite times of the week.

It has been so easy and natural to

bond with other students at Chabad

events and Shabbat dinners.

Through playing with their son, Meir, I

got to know both Rivka & Mendy, who

immediately became a support system

for me at Elon. It is so nice having

a true family and home to go to on

campus. It doesn’t matter what I eat,

what I wear, or what I do. From the

start, they accepted me for who I am.

WHY I SUPPORT CHABAD

A Grateful Parent | Andy Fradkin, P ’21

From San Carlos, California

As a Jewish Community Professional

who served as Chief Policy Officer of

the Jewish Community Federation of

San Francisco and the Chief Development

Officer of the Jewish Federation

of Palm Beach, I recognize the

important role Chabad plays on university

campuses. I fondly remember

my own Chabad rabbi at Vanderbilt,

when I was in college, and I am glad

my daughter is able to have the same

experience in Elon. Chabad has become

Joey’s home away from home,

whether it is Shabbat dinner, celebrating

the holidays, or just hanging

with her friends. And—who else delivers

chicken soup to the dorm? To our

family, Chabad is an essential component

of being a Jewish student at

Elon. I am proud to support Chabad

Elon and the services it provides to

enhance Jewish life on campus.


YOU GIVE EVERY JEWISH STUDENT A HOME

A WORD FROM THE DIRECTORS

YOU ENABLE RICH HOLIDAY EXPERIENCES

Dear Friend,

“I’ve never felt so connected to my

Judaism before”—these are the exact

words a student recently shared

with us. Your steadfast support of the

Chabad Student Center is what has

enabled this moment—and countless

others—to happen.

YOU PROVIDE DIVERSE SOCIAL EVENTS

YOU BRING TORAH CLASSES TO ELON

Every day, students come together at

Chabad to share a joy, a challenge,

to draw strength from another and

celebrate their common Judaism together.

They have a place to go, and

an ever-welcoming address because

you make sure that Chabad is able to

be there for them.

The past several months have seen

a true revival of Jewish life in Elon,

and we are working hard to harness

the momentum and keep climbing to

new heights.

You are writing the next chapter of

Judaism in Elon, and we can’t wait to

be a part of it!

With tremendous gratitude

for your support,

Rabbi Mendy & Rivka Minkowitz
