"The most rewarding experience as a Global Ambassador was when I organized a trip for a group of friends to celebrate Passover in Ghana, where we met Jews from all over the world. Sitting with Jews from around the world, united together by our Jewish identity, brought us all closer together. I couldn’t imagine my semester at sea without KAHAL!"

- Jessi Vishny Spring '18, Semester at Sea
