Bring Jewish light to even MORE college students.
Hi! You're one step away from having an real impact in the lives of over TWO HUNDRED Jewish community college students AND their families.
Mushka and Isser are far from perfect and we have a long way to go over the next decade as we bring
Jewish warmth, wisdom, community and laughter to the Jewish Students at Pierce College and their families
No words will explain the heart and soul of what we're achieving on campus. Attend an event or let us bring some students to you so you can truly grasp the novelty and success that Chabad at Pierce is creating.
Here is a list of resources we are working towards providing for this niche demographic.
A full time, loving and dedicated Rabbi and Rebetzin.
To be available around the clock providing students with one on one counseling, education, companionship and inspiration
A culture of appreciation and gratitude
Whether it's student attendees volunteers, smaller donors or major partners - we're creating an infectious culture of gratitude for our local and broader community to benefit from. Rabbi Isser often quotes the Hassidic saying that "whenever two people get together a third person should benefit from it".
An officially-recognized and thriving student led Jewish club on campus.
With the transient nature of Jewish life of community college students and faculty at Pierce. This is an ongoing
effort, but the reward of having legitimate Jewish infrastructure campus itself far outweighs the efforts.
Social, Educational and Religious Programming provided without needing to go to a synagogue.
Shabbat and Holiday meals, access to Jewish services like Shofar and eating in a Sukka. Barbecues and Bonfires at the beach. Hebrew school and Jewish educational courses.
Student Leadership Opportunities
Many millennials were raised with strong Jewish feelings and values and take coluntary leadership positions. Increasing the impact and capacity of the Chabad community.
A central office and system for communications.
Providing individualized communications for hundreds of college students, to be informed of what opportunities are out there for them. For increased success of our own events as well as third party programs like Birthright and internships.
We hold ourselves to extreme administrative accountability for funds spent, and hours worked. Chabad at Pierce is synonymous with over-delivery. We publish a bi-annual report with stats and data for our seed funders and share it with our major partners.
