With the new school year at UCR just two weeks away, Rabbi Mendy and Feigy Lezak arrived with their daughter Mushka in Riverside California. They are excited to establish a Chabad Student Center at the University of California, Riverside.
UCR is a campus with so much potential. There are hundreds of Jewish students needing to be reached. A new kosher kitchen is in the works. There are also seven other neighboring campuses with small Jewish populations. There couldn’t be a better time for the Lezaks to start their new role in Riverside.
The Lezaks were appointed by Rabbi Shmuel and Tzippy Fuss, who established Chabad of Riverside over 18 years ago. Two years ago, Rabbi Sruli and Faigy Mochkin joined their team to support and grow the children’s programming in the community. Over the years a beautiful Jewish Community has blossomed. The Lezak’s full-time presence, serving the local campus students, will bring an incredible increase of Yiddishkeit into the region.
“At Chabad on Campus, we will anticipate and serve the needs of students on a social, educational, and spiritual level,” said Rabbi Mendy Lezak. “ We are dedicated to providing an open-door environment where students from all walks of life and of any affiliation can explore their Jewish heritage.”
Your support is vital to creating a “home away from home” where every Jewish student can find a deeper affinity, connection, and understanding of our rich heritage.
