Binghammton students rallied within a few hours to unite in prayer, study of Torah and Tzedakah in merit of our brothers and sisters in Israel.

Hundreds of students, alumni, parents and friends came together in New York to celebrate 30 years of Chabad at Binghamton. The evening was full of joy, emotion and lots of laughter as those in attendance caught up with old friends and made new ones. The evening concluded with writing the first few words of a new Torah scroll - "the Binghamton Legacy Torah" which will be written in honor of all of the students, alumni, parents and friends whose lives have been touched by Chabad. We wish a big Mazel Tov to the honorees.

Hundreds of students joined by scores of Binghamton community members came out to bake Challah together in a grand celebration of Jewish culture and lore.
This year's Mega Bake was graced with the presence of the renowned "Challah Fairy" who travelled from New Jersey to preside over the evening.
Three generations of Binghamton women, Marcia Hoffstein, her daughter Wendy Green and her daughter, Shira, made the blessing over separating the Challah.
The evening began with a moment of silence for the young Ezra Schwartz and other victims of recent terror.
