    Last Thursday and Friday, Chabad and the Empty Bowls Project held a bake sale of kosher, homemade challah on campus to promote unity and fight hunger in Schenectady.

    The Empty Bowls Project is a hunger relief organization in Schenectady. Amongst their numerous initiatives they arrange a fundraiser “meager meal” in Proctors Theatre and work all year round to arrange bowl-making and decorating workshops. These bowls represent the “empty bowls” of many of our community members.

    Chabad provides educational, social and spiritual programs for students and faculty. Programming always reflects tolerant, non-judgmental and open discussions, which is the hallmark of Chabad’s inclusiveness, according to members of Chabad.

    This is the first time Chabad and Empty Bowls have collaborated for such an initiative.

    According to Laiky Rubin, co-director of Chabad, the bake sale was a huge success, as the groups were able to sell around 50 pounds of challah.

    Rubin says all proceeds will be used to benefit local charities, such as the Bethesda House, Schenectady City Mission and Concern for the Hungry.

    She also thanked the brothers of Alpha Epsilon Pi for assisting with baking.

    From the challah bread bake sale the clubs made $320 according to Jenna Salisbury ’18.

    Both organizations believe this bake sale was a great way for Chabad and Empty Bowls to join together and involve the entire Union community in helping those in need.

    Due to the success of the bake sale, both organizations are excited to partner and work on similar collaborative efforts again.
