Students and Giving; Our Responsibility

Recently we renewed our invitation to students to become Shareholders of Chabad at Brandeis. This was done most notably by dedicating a Shabbat Dinner for students who are Shareholders.

The response to these efforts has exposed students’ characteristics that as educators we failed to address sooner. Our unquestionable successes would easily provide us with the wool to cover our eyes, to use the metaphor, and assuage what we are experiencing. Instead, it has reinforced our determination to rise to the challenge and become more effective educators.

This is the first in a series of new podcasts that will be conversations between us on a variety of topics.

Your thoughts and feedback are welcome on our site,, or on

Thank you,
Chanie and Peretz

    This is an excellent approach to building “ownership” by students of their Chabad at Brandeis while also helping to reinforce the ethos of tzedakah as central to their lives.

      Thank you Howard for your kind words. Indeed this approach is critical for the wellbeing of the students we engage with.
