JJ Chehab

My name is JJ Chehab, and I am a freshman from Evanston, Illinois. My hobbies include playing sports, creating music, and volunteering. Coming to Alabama from Illinois, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a Jewish community for myself. Fortunately, I found Chabad, and I am excited to participate on the board of such a great organization!


Executive Board Member

Alex Malkin

My name is Alex Malkin. I was born in Denver, CO but raised in sunny Jupiter, FL. I’m a Public Relations major with a minor in management. I wanted to be on the Chabad board so I can do my part to make sure Jewish students have a home on campus

Each of us can serve as a leader. And one leader creates another and another, ad infinitum, just as one candle’s flame lights another and another until the once-impenetrable darkness has turned to brilliant light.


We always welcome new program ideas and assistance, so contact us if you'd like to serve as a member of the board. You can be an integral part of a dynamic circle of Jewish students at Bama who are using their talent to make a difference.
Add your voice and feel the difference you make. Together we can keep the flame of Judaism shining brightly in the UA community and beyond.
