Here's what people have to say...
"Even though I attended Jewish Day School and other programs to enhance my Jewish education, it wasn't until I started attending Chabad AU that I truly felt a deep and spiritual connection to my religion culture and community..."
“...The work [you] do is beyond incredible. Sometimes your so busy in it, going from one event to the next without a minute to breathe, that I don't think you realize how much you're doing for all the students and the community...without you guys I wouldn't be where I am now with my Judaism..."
“It's been a pleasure getting to know the Chabad AU community so far, and I look froward to many more years of mitzvoth!"
