Chabad at ASU lifted the spirits of many students on the Arizona State University campus on Sept. 12. After a weekend made somber by the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Chabad – in partnership with the Hillel Jewish Student Center and the Latter Day Saint Student Association – encouraged everyone do to a good deed in remembrance of those lost in the attacks.

The 9/11 Mitzvah Marathon has been put on by Chabad at ASU since 2005. The goal is to make the world a better place by encouraging individuals of all walks of life to pledge to do good deeds, and affect others in a positive manner. As people pledged to engage in acts of kindness, they filled up what was referred to as the “Twin Towers of Good.” Participants wrote in their chosen mitzvah, and dedicated it to a victim of the 9/11 attack. Many chose deeds like showing courtesy to others, strengthening connections among family members, and remaining grateful for what they have.
