WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I discovered JewishSU during the first student BBQ the Dinerman family had. I immediately felt like I was accepted with open arms. I always felt like I was the only Jew is the area but with the opening of Winchester Chabad I was quickly proven wrong. I love having the option of having a family Shabbat dinner while I'm miles away from home. It is truly a blessing to be a part of the Chabad and to have met Rabbi Dinerman, Bluma, and their girls.
Chabad JewishSU provided the Shabbos-at-home feeling I missed while being away. My weekly learning sessions with Rabbi Dinerman is always a highlight to my week. Chabad let me graduate college this year with comfort, knowing the other Jewish students are well taken care of, and have a Jewish home away from home.
My first two years at SU, I often struggled to find a community of Jewish students. That all changed when the Dinerman family came to town. JewishSU has created a safe and welcoming space to explore and celebrate Judaism. The events they hold on a regular basis have enhanced my quality of life while attending school. It means so much to me to have a "home" to celebrate Shabbat and Jewish holidays in Winchester. I am forever grateful for all JewishSU has done.
