Chabad Making a Difference

Times of Israel, Tuesday, September 18, 2018

...Listening to each one of the students speak about why the holiday was meaningful to them at Eli and Blumie Gurevitz’ Chabad House in Haverford has helped to restore my faith in the next generation. People my age love to complain about the “new youth.” We say they are lazy, lost in the millennium, without direction, and essentially amoral. However true that might be, it certainly was not evident listening to the students at Eli and Blumie’s Chabad House this past Rosh Hashanah. These are principled, thoughtful and amiable young people who are thinking about the meaning of life, spirituality, and their dedication to Jewish values…

Drexel Expects Influx of Orthodox Students

Jewish Exponent - PA, Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Every evening during the school year, students head to the Chabad serving Drexel University for a kosher meal that includes a protein, a starch or carbohydrate, soup and a salad bar. “It’s a nice opportunity to see each other,” said Rudi Weinberg, treasurer of the Chabad House’s student board and president of the kosher meal plan. “We’ll come, we’ll talk, we’ll sit. We can take [the food] to go, or we can sit and eat at Chabad. I know there are students who have only come to Drexel because they know that the meal program exists.”…

At Princeton University, Jewish Life Is Thriving

Algemeiner, Thursday, August 9, 2018

...Being part of the Jewish community at Princeton means surrounding yourself with some of the brightest and nicest people around. In describing the richness of Jewish life, Rabbi Eitan Webb, one of Princeton’s Jewish chaplains and director of the Scharf Family Chabad House, said, “whether it’s sharing magical Shabbat dinners with friends, coming together as a community to support others, learning more about our religion, or celebrating all kinds of events and holidays, Princeton University is the place to be for Jews of all backgrounds looking for a home away from home.”

Eating Kosher At ASU Is About To Get Easier

Arizona Republic, Friday, August 3, 2018

...Tiechtel said the bistro at the Hassayampa dining hall will help attract prospective students to the university. Many Jewish parents ask him about accommodations on campus, including the food, he said. "It's really going to bring people together," Tiechtel said.

AU Grad, Inspired By Grandfather, Combines Passions For Research And Patient Care

Eagle - American University, Washington, DC, Wednesday, August 1, 2018

...AU also taught Kaufman how important it is to find a community, she said. Spending all her life in Israel, she said she wasn’t accustomed to communities where everyone wasn’t Jewish. At the University, she learned from her peers about different cultures and her own, eventually joining Chabad, a Jewish organization on campus. “It made me understand where I came from when I was away,” she said…

Kosher Meals Come To ASU’s Tempe Campus

Jewish News of Greater Phoenix - AZ, Wednesday, July 25, 2018

...Arizona State is ranked No. 1 in the country by U.S. News & World Report for being the leader in innovation when it comes to public schools, and Tiechtel thinks the new kosher dining initiative is in line with that reputation. “When students suggest the school would benefit from having something new, President Crow listens,” he said. “He works hard at making sure that the university is meeting the needs of every student.” Adding ASU’s name to the list of universities that offer kosher dining, Tiechtel noted, “certainly shows why the school is top for innovation.”…

Drexel Student Group Works to Expand Eruv

Jewish Exponent - PA, Wednesday, July 4, 2018

...“The eruv as it was, as it is now, doesn’t reach Chabad, which creates this awkward dynamic [that] students, especially Orthodox ones who are conscious of the need of an eruv, didn’t have a way to carry their key to Chabad on Shabbat or carry their IDs or anything like that,” said Guedalia, who considers herself modern Orthodox. “It was always one of those things where, if it became a possibility, it was always something that we wanted.” In April, David Lifschutz, a parent of a Drexel student, visited his daughter at the university. While at Chabad, he learned that it was not located inside of the eruv. He wanted to help expand it, putting this project into motion…
