    Chabad had even a much earlier presence at the Cardozo School of Law in the form of students and faculty. When I first enrolled at Cardozo in 1988 there were less than a handful of mezuzahs up in the entire school building. After consultation with Rabbi Goldberg at Hadar HaTorah I relentlessly approached a non- Jewish administrator who finally contacted the main Yeshiva University about the situation, and B”H Yeshiva University then put mezuzahs on all the doorposts throughout the school. I remember donating a Tanya to the Cardozo law library and writing to the Rebbe to detail the card catalog number the librarian assigned to the Tanya. I would often bring my tefillin to put on other students, and I maintained a sign up list for students to list their secular birthday so I could look up their Jewish birthdays for them. Yisroel Schulman, also a Lubavitcher, was running the legal services clinic at Cardozo at the time.
