Programs - Chabad at Yale


Free Mezuzah initiative

Chabad at Yale will offer a free Mezuzah to any Jewish student who needs one for their dorm room or apartment. An ancient tradition teaches that this small Mitzvah brings blessing and serenity to your home. A person introduces holiness and harmony into the world by placing a Mezuzah on his or her door.
