When moving to Florida, I struggled to find the same connection with other Jews that I found in my previous home. It’s been over a year now since I joined Chabad’s CTeen program. The cultural and religious experience that I desired has been fulfilled with entertaining, fun, and wonderful events. CTeen has lifted my spirits, and it has made a noticeable difference in my life. I found my home and it’s with CTeen.

—Neve Sirota

Coming from a secular background, I have gained a greater understanding of Jewish beliefs and practices through the JLI classes. The classes are presented in a way that provides answers to the many questions I have had and positively impacts the way I view and practice Judaism.

—Patti Gersh

My family is thrilled with Hebrew School of the Arts, especially our daughter, Ariella. Rabbi Mendy and Morah Chanie and all the teachers are so enthusiastic and energetic. Their friendly, non-judgmental, and inclusive approach means every Jewish child is welcome, regardless of affiliation, religious observance, or prior knowledge. It’s not only the scope of the material and quality of Jewish education our children receive, it’s the way in which it is taught and the effect it has on the kids. They instill Jewish pride and create Jewish connections that will last a lifetime.

—David Vinokurov

I am very thankful that I found Chabad of Bradenton & Lakewood Ranch when I moved here from Maryland last year. It has become central to my life. I have found my friends here and I have reconnected to my Judaism. Torah and Tea, Rosh Chodesh Society, holidays and special events like the Mega Challah Bake fill my days with special memories.

—Linda April

There are many reasons why we financially support Chabad. We find the timeless values of Torah to be a sanctuary from the cultural turmoil in the country. Chabad’s focus on education broadens the heart and mind. Finally, Rabbi and Rebbetzin Bukiet’s joy and celebration of Yiddishkeit is infectious.

—Bill & Rosanne Strauss
