Dear Friend,

Chabad of Lansing/MSU is committed to providing wonderful and enriching programs to every Jew in the Greater Lansing area, and our continued growth is made possible by the support we receive from friends like you.

Unlike traditional synagogues, Chabad of Lansing/MSU does not ask for annual membership dues or require any building fund payments. Each Chabad Center is self-supporting and is funded individually from the chartiable giving of individuals.

To help support the myriad holiday and educational programs, social events, and religious services of Chabad of Lansing/MSU, we have created the Chai Club and are inviting you to become our partner. By becoming our partner through the Chai Club, you are committing to a monthly donation in a multiple of 18, or Chai which means life in Hebrew. As a member of the Chai Club, your donation, combined with everyone else’s in this special club, will allow us to continue serving the community’s spiritual needs and allow us to reach out like never before.

We genuinely request you consider one of these Partner Levels. With your help, we will meet and exceed our goals and continue to foster Jewish Living.

This is not a multi level marketing scheme, it’s just simple math. $18 is significant! Watch this: Ten people giving $18 per month is $180 per month. Over twelve months that is $2160. Now if we continue to add ten new donors @ $18 per month for 12 months the total monthly intake is now $2160 and the annual intake is $25,920!

(Just for fun, let’s say five of the ten give $36 instead of $18. The total monthly (after 12 months of new donors) is now $3240 and the annual is $38,880. If we did this for three years the total monthly will be $9720 and annual will be $116,640.)

Thank G‑d as Chabad of Lansing/MSU has grown and our budget has grown, I am turning to you to join our Chai Club. Pick a dollar amount in multiples of CHAI – LIFE = $18 ($18, $36, $72,$180, etc.) and we will set you up on an automatic monthly charge. You can always increase it or decrease it.

With blessing, 
Rabbi Hendel and Bracha Leah Weingarten
