Alumni Spotlight: Yosef Garbow

(From Left: Alumni Yossi Hein and Yosef Garbow) Aumni Spotlight: Featuring Yosef Garbow I attended Mayanot for the year, starting in the fall of 2016 and I'm  currently a sophomore at Baruch College, in New York City.  I accomplished a lot during my year at Mayanot, and took away very valuable tools, especially from an academic standpoint. However, Mayanot taught me a lot more than just how to read a text, it taught me what it means to be a  chassid . It gave me the tools to not only survive in a secular environment, but to thrive.   My favorite part of the Mayanot program was definitely the  chassidus  classes. The breadth of knowledge I gained and the way that the rabbi's have really helped me get the most out of my learning. I have already experienced the benefits of taking the inspiration with me.  Mayanot instills in you a desire to help other Jews connect to Judaism. The first time I did   mivtzoim ( mitzvah campaigns launched by the Lubavitcher Rebbe)
