Exhibit J is a wonderful community of young Jewish adults. It was a fantastic experience being welcomed in and becoming a part of this family. Taking the time off of a busy schedule for two hours to learn more about Judaism and meet new friends is a must!

I recommend Exhibit J to everyone. It is such an amazing learning experience, where you learn about Judaism, life and most importantly yourself. The opportunities this program gives to so many students are incredible. Rabbi Chandalov and his wife are doing an amazing job with bringing the Staten Island Jewish community closer together!

Most amazing program with an incredible Jewish experience! Rabbi Chandalov makes every person feel welcome and goes out of his way to reach out to every person to see if he can do anything to help them at all. Truly a one of a kind experience, I'm so happy I got to be a part of it! I also met great people and got to go to Israel so what's better than that??

Exhibit J is the best place to make new friends and to stop what you are doing for 2 hours to learn such great things with great people.

Exhibit J is a phenomenal class, which helped me make more friends and learn more about the Torah. Every class I gained new experiences in learning and creativity. Furthermore, it's fun, exciting, and full of friendly people.

Jessica G.

I don't even know where to begin. Rabbi David Chandalov is one of the best human beings I have ever met, as well as his wife! They are truly on a mission to help you find your way throughout life no matter what you choose to do with it. I highly recommend joining.

One of the best experiences I've had in a Jewish organization. Rabbi Chandalov is very knowledgeable in Torah and has a great way of bringing people together in a fun and exciting way. Also, the food is great. He does a lot for the Staten Island community. Greatly appreciate his services and recommend him to any and all Jewish youth in the area. You won't regret it!

Exhibit J is an amazing program that really taught me about my Jewish identity and about Judaism in general. The Chandalovs are amazing and made the experience all the better!

Rabbi Chandalov is the man! Keeps it very fun and engaging.

Alex K.

Rabbi Chandalov and his wife are so great! I was drifting apart from my Jewish religion... after a few classes and a Shabbaton with his family & friends, it really showed me what I had known all along! & pushed me so much closer to Judaism and made me so interested and I had so many questions that Rabbi and his wife were more than happy to answer! I even signed up for birthright because they got me so interested!

Exhibit J was a life changing experience for me. I joined this club on a whim trying to meet new people, but I never thought I could meet such amazing and awesome people who would change my life. Because of Exhibit J I have become a proud member of the Jewish community and I have discovered parts of myself I never thought were there. The Chandalovs are like family, amazing and warm people that have introduced me to so much, and have made me learn so much about being Jewish as well as just being a better person. I am so thankful to them for everything and it would be a shame for anyone to pass up being part of such a community that has become like a family.

Julia K.

With everything going on in the world today, it's nice to know that there are people like Rabbi Chandalov of Exhibit J that strive to bring out the best in a community. He brings people together, then helps THEM to exhibit Judaism for others.

Exhibit J is gives a great opportunity to make new friends and learn more about your Jewish identity. The Chandalovs go out of their way to make this a fun and interesting program!

Zoe D.

Exhibit J is a great class not only bringing Jewish guys & girls from Staten Island together but also learning about Judaism. Rabbi Chandalov and his wife are amazing people. Rabbi Chandalov helped me get a great scholarship to go to school in Israel & I couldn't be more excited.

Alaina B.

Definitely a beneficial program I'm glad I took part in. Learned some valuable life lessons I have continued to carry with me.

Carissa M.

The seminar is a great way to introduce young people to Judaism

This was a profound learning experience. This isn't just some program, it's a one of a kind community. The topics were thought provoking and stimulating on so many levels. Rabbi Chandalov really makes this a great experience!

Alex T.

It has been a pleasure to be welcomed into Exhibit J. From the moment I got involved, it was always an experience to attend seminars held by the program. I have met many great individuals and we all shared stories that lead us to an understanding of a lesson or a deeper connection to the meaning of life. In addition, many of the sessions were informative because of the extensive amount of guest speakers that participated in our meetings. The one thing that I admired the most about the program was the dinners :) Always was fun to eat, talk and learn all at the same time!

Milla A.

Exhibit J has been a wonderful experience which gave me the opportunity to make new friends and memories. This class has opened my eyes to the true meaning behind Judaism and I am so grateful to have been offered this chance.

Fiana B.

When I first started Exhibit J, I did not know what to expect. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It was great getting to know other individuals and learning about religion. The guest speakers all had something very wise to teach us and I left every class feeling more educated. Exhibit J was a great experience and something I will never forget!

Pamela B.

Exhibit J is a wonderful program helping Jews connect to their roots and meet new people. All you need is to meet Rabbi David once and you will understand!!

Ori I.

The work that Rabbi Chandalov and his wife are undertaking has never been as needed in Staten Island. Many Jewish men and women attending CSI desperately needed to be connected with their Jewish roots. Exhibit J has done that and then some. From the learning programs to the Shabbatons, Rabbi Chandalov and his wife put every bit of their souls into ensuring the continuation of our Jewish traditions in future generations. May G-d bless them and open to them more opportunities to do their holy work!

Rafael I.

Everyone if possible should join Exhibit J. It is an awesome and amazing experience!

Jenn T.

This is such an amazing Jewish experience!

Eric S.

I had no idea there were so many fun, spirited Jews my age on this island. I can proudly say that through Exhibit J, I became a more conscious, mindful, and wiser human being.

Ilya L.

I feel that through Exhibit J, I have grown as a person. Meeting amazing people, creating new friendships, hearing from motivational guest speakers, and becoming a part of the warm Exhibit J family - are experiences that have made me more confident to embrace my Judaism and not take my heritage for granted.

Loren M.

I am grateful to have been part of an insightful group of individuals sharing thoughts and experiences through interactive learning. The Exhibit J experience has been a stepping stone on my continued Jewish journey.

Carla M.

Exhibit J is a program I never thought I'd get to experience. As a college student I don't have time to tap into my Jewish identity, but with Exhibit J I had somewhere to go every week to do that. Every speaker taught me how to be a better me and how to live life to the fullest. I learned things I don't think I'll ever forget.

Rebecca Y.

Exhibit J is a way for me to connect with other Jewish college students just like me.

Yarden B.

I didn't discover Judaism. I just remembered I was a Jew.

Michael D.

Exhibit J Seminar was simultaneously very laid back and very informative. Besides for making great friends, I learned a lot of new things and a lot about aspects of Judaism I had questioned. Exhibit J gave me a clearer understanding of Judaism, reinforced my pride in my roots, and inspired me to continue my exploration and commitment. It was an unforgettable experience.

Shanee N.

Exhibit J Seminar was great! The instructors were fun to listen to and the participants were passionate about the material. Most of us are coming back for another semester!

Max A.

I'm really happy and grateful I had the chance to be a part of the Exhibit J program. It created a new path for me, one that I was searching for in college. I'm looking forward to the next semester, to meeting new friends, and to continue being part of a wonderful experience.

Inna Y.

Of the Jewish programs I have taken so far, Exhibit J is my favorite. The discussions we have are eye-opening and great guidance for the future. The guest speakers were incredible - a collector with antiques, and a soldier who switched uniforms throughout his story… Exhibit J does an amazing job opening the eyes of young adults who want to get a look inside Judaism.

Emmanuelle D.

Joining Exhibit J this semester gave me so much. The guest speakers were inspiring and shared interesting stories that changed my views on Judaism. I gained great life tips, made friends, and discovered the meaning of a Jew’s purpose in life, and some of my own purpose for being here.

Mike A.

Exhibit J seminar was very educational, I enjoyed the weekly meetings and made new friends. Every week I looked forward to seeing everyone and learning a new topic.

Danielle I.

I had an amazing time with Exhibit J. The Shabbatons were amazing and the speakers were very entertaining. Looking forward to next semester!

Josh B.

I had so much fun this semester at J Health. My favorite part was being able to interact with so many different health care professionals and learn about what they do. I felt comfortable asking questions that I may not want to ask my professors. J Health is great for students who want to network with professionals in their field.

Sonya T.

My meetings with Rabbi Chandalov are enjoyable and relaxing. We talk about whatever we want and always have a good time. On top of a spiritual and mutual learning experience, a special bond of friendship is formed.
