Summer is quieter on our end with most students away, but is a wonderful time for us to go to alumni simchas (always in season!), alumni reunions and visits and small Cozy Shabbats up here . Of course, we’re also busy planning for the new year, organizing and catching up with back end office stuff and trying to raise the funds to keep the good works going.
COZY SHABBAT WEEKENDS:
Students up here for summer school, internships or work etc are most welcome. Alumni, too, of course! Whether you are up in the area visiting anyways or want to getaway for a Shabbat with us.
Cozy Shabbats scheduled for this summer include: June 14, 21, 28. July 5, July 12 & July 19. August 2 & 16. August 23rd is already Move-In/Opening Weekend, a new year ahead!
GREATER NYC-AREA ALUMNI REUNIONS:
July 1-4: in Stamford CT at Chabad on Campus Conference. If you live or work in/around the area, would love to meet up! We’ll be at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Stamford CT and can meet up there or nearby in the area.
