Welcome to the KAHAL community! We are here to help with grants toward a High Holidays experience abroad ranging from $10-$50.


Below, you can apply for a grant to subsidize your attendance and participation in High Holidays experiences abroad, ranging from meals to services, parties and more; or create your own DIY Jewish Experience for you and your friends and take ownership of your own Jewish journey!If you haven’t signed up for our App yet, by registering here you’ll gain entry into our online community.

KAHAL is proud to give out more than $30,000 in experiential grants each year. KAHAL’s program grants are sponsored by members of the Jewish community, including UJA: The Jewish Federation of New York. The Jewish community is committed to making your experience abroad the best it can be, and we trust you’ll do the same for future students someday, too.


  • Grants are available to any student studying outside of their home country, or in a separate country from their home campus, for four or more weeks;
  • Students are eligible for up to $50 USD in grant funding to be used towards all of their High Holiday experiences;
  • Students are expected to pay the first $15 of any cost, and KAHAL will cover any additional costs, up to $50; the minimum amount a student can request is $10;
  • Host your own High Holidays event or meal with 4 or more students and you may be eligible for a larger grant!
