Rabbi Eli Backman is the best out there! Great and inspiring speaker- awesome combination of passion and wisdom, humor and insight. A Rav and mashpia in the most humblest of ways, he and his family tirelessly dedicated to their sglichys, including feeding hundreds of students every week. – may you continue lead from strength to strength. – an admirer

why these ceremonies can’t be held on a plain weekday so no one is made to feel like a lesser concern in any way. friday afternoon, for example, would be nice . those that fear their work schedule might be disrupted would simply be starting their weekend half a day early.

it's best on sunday

Reb Shlomo Hamburger is a living example of a Yid who is in both worlds. His words impact students in a most posotive way. More Chabad Houses should have him inspire their people.

Go Rabbi Backman and Hillel at UMD

where is the respect for uniting everyone? Why not have it on a day good for all? Nice that they had a special day, yes, but nicer still if the date was changed to include all. Including all means ALL!
