New York City increased its population this past weekend by 1,200-plus young men and women, who visited from college campuses in North America and around the world. Pegisha, the annual Chabad on Campus International Shabbaton, brought students from as far away as Austria, South Africa and Israel. They came to learn, tour, study, socialize and spend a traditional Shabbat, complete with a group Havdalah ceremony, in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y., where most programs were held. To date, a total of 256 Chabad on Campus centers operate worldwide, offering Shabbat dinners, Torah study, classes, one-on-one learning, social events, tzedakah opportunities, hot-soup deliveries, Jewish holiday programs and more.
