WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING
"[In Sinai Scholars] I found that the taking of very abstract concepts such as identity and ethics and applying both Jewish scripture and commentary in order to relate them to our current 21st century lives provides an interesting way to correlate what seem to be two very distinct spheres but in reality are the same."
Daniel Gilbert, class of 2023
"With the assistance of Chabad, Jewish life on campus played a strong role in providing me with a community and sense of belonging. Thank you very much for your continued support to Chabad, which greatly enhanced my Jewish experience at the University of Chicago."
Ben Weinstein, class of 2020
“When I go to Chabad, I am no longer drowning in the masses but am an integral part of a community.”
Bethany Gedzelman, class of 2022
