The Circle of Light: How to Give

What does it mean to be a light unto the nations? In this talk, Adina Lichtman describes her own exploration to find the meaning of this admonishment from Isaiah. Reflecting on her founding of a wide-reaching project (Knock Knock Give a Sock) to provide the simple necessity of a pair of socks to those in need, Lichtman discusses how “being a light unto nations” happens not only through direct giving, but giving others the opportunity to give.

Adina Lichtman is currently a student at New York University where she is studying Social Work with a minor in art and is the founder of the Knock Knock Give a Sock initiative, which is active on multiple campuses in New York City. Previously, Lichtman was the Hillel Community Service chair at NYU where she organized a number of programs including PB&J making for the homeless, blood drives, and Friday visits to a local senior center. In addition, Lichtman teaches in the special Education program at Hebrew School.
