KAHAL Staff Contact: Jessie,

North America is full of Jews who celebrate and observe Judaism in different and meaningful ways across the spectrum.  We have connections with synagogues, organizations on campus, organizations off campus, host families… the North American Jewish community is diverse and wonderful and we can’t wait to help you find your space here!  Let KAHAL know what you’re interested in – whether you are looking for a community that feels similar to what you’re used to at home or something totally different – we have connections all over and cannot wait for you to meet everyone. We will help guide you according to your preferred observance level, desire for new experiences, and neighborhood.

If you’re looking for synagogue connections in particular, feel free to use this amazing resource!

Celebrating the High Holidays abroad made me realize that the larger Jewish community is actually a bigger family. Total strangers opening up their homes to students is very meaningful and I am sure I will do the same in the future
