How did an IDF soldier who saw his leg blown off in a terrorist attack in the Old City of Jerusalem find meaning and purpose as he toured American universities?
These, and many other questions, drive the stories that fill the pages of QUAD, a beautiful new magazine highlighting the activities of Chabad on Campus Shluchim throughout the world that recently saw its inaugural edition published and distributed to the public. The sixty pages of this new platform give readers an inkling of the tremendous breadth and scope of the tireless individual shluchim on their respective campuses.
“There are so many shluchim quietly going about their business and literally changing the world,” said Rabbi Yossy Gordon, CEO of Chabad on Campus International. “Amazingly, so many don’t yet know this—not to mention the Shluchim themselves, who don’t always get to see just how far-reaching their work is. We are proud to present QUAD to the public, where you can see for yourself how these remarkable shluchim are changing the face of future Jewish generations.”
Stories range from intimate interviews with successful CEOs who were personally touched by Chabad during their youthful experiences as college students to field reports from a dizzying number of locations crisscrossing the globe. Special attention is given to two hot-button issues rampant on college campuses; mental health concerns and antisemitism. While the particulars make for a fascinating read, the broader picture that emerges is one of positivity and compassion.
Instead of dire predictions and fearsome statistics decrying a negative situation, these Shluchim take to the hearts and minds of their students to spread a message that declares: be bold, be proud, and carry your Jewishness outward!
QUAD magazine is bursting with engaging reads in an attractive layout. As its name demonstrates, Shluchim’s activities are at the heart of Jewish life on campus, turning the Chabad House into a veritable “quad”—a name for the university’s central square and where students gather to share ideas and rejuvenate. If there’s any place that Jewish students gather and rejuvenate to refresh their soul, it’s together with the shluchim at Chabad on Campus.
