WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY!
“I have never missed a Passover Seder with my family so it was very special to be able to recreate my own, especially while camping in the middle of New Zealand. KAHAL made it all possible and I am extremely thankful for their kind support. We had delicious food and were brought together by a lovely meal after a very stressful few days traveling. It really felt like a Jewish miracle being able to have seder in a totally new place with people that I love. ”Jamie S.Queenstown, New Zealand
“While studying abroad, a goal of mine was to expand my independence. Through learning about Judaism in Italy, a country where some of my family is from, I have a greater sense of identity as an Italian Jew. Nobody else in my family has experienced this, so now I can go home and share a part of our Jewish history.”Lauren V.Rome, Italy
“Studying abroad through a Jewish lens helped me to recognize the wonder of global Judaism and the holy community that Judaism creates around the globe.”Deni B.London, England
“Being able to connect with the Jewish community abroad allowed me a sense of familiarity, comfort, and sense of belonging in a largely foreign community. Participating in traditions not dissimilar from my upbringing, despite being in a city wildly different from my hometown was eye-opening. It was insightful, rewarding, and heartwarming to celebrate multiple Shabbatot and Passover in Argentina.”HunterBuenos Aires, Argentina
“KAHAL is unprecedented in its mission. Not only does it embody all that Judaism is by welcoming each other and making each other feel at home in a strange place, but it actively seeks to promote Judaism around the world. ”Merle D.Sydney, Australia
“I had an unforgettable experience connecting with different Jewish communities all across Europe during my study abroad experience. More specifically, I enjoyed connecting with other Jewish students in London through KAHAL, and used my micro-grant to plan a Shabbaton in Edinburgh with four friends!”Shifra B.London, England
