Chabad Emeryville & Jewish Kids Club

Chai Club Partners

What is the Chai Club?

The Chai Club is a group of caring and involved people who want to give to the gift of joyful Judaism to Emeryville and youth activities.

Chai means life. The heart does a small thing. It pumps. We often don’t think about the things that keep us alive. But they are so very important. The Chai Club consists of individuals committed to the health and stability of Chabad.

Different than the major stakeholders, yet so very important.

Every month your donation will join others to create a lifestream and financial stability for our community work.

Habit of Kindness

Maimonides teaches that it's better to give numerous, smaller donations, than one lump sum, even though they add up to the same amount.  The logic is twofold:  (1) Each individual mitzvah has unique value irregardless of the size. (2) The more acts of giving we do, we nurture a habit of kindness within ourselves which pays dividends in every area of our lives.

How much?

A little more than you were thinking.  The Rebbe taught us to always push ourselves, a little bit at a time.  At the same time, try to pick an amount that you'll be comfortable keeping steady. Don’t worry, you can always increase or decrease the amount.
