Resources for Jewish Students Abroad


Below are some resources to utilize for our Jewish students, particularly those who need a kosher experience when studying abroad. This is just a start on the resources available. Contact your advisor for program-specific information.

KAHAL: Your Jewish Home Abroad - Working closely with UJA Federations of New York and CUNY Hillels, KAHAL will provide you with resources to enhance your experience. KAHAL connects Jewish students to Jewish communities abroad and provides them with resources to navigate Jewish life in a foreign country. They want to make sure each student is supported and has a positive experience abroad. The resources include information about Grants, Internships, Volunteering, Shabbat and holiday experiences, and more.

Studying abroad and looking for High Holiday plans? KAHAL and CUNY College of Staten Island have got you covered. Join a local community, host family, or use our awesome “DIY” resources to organize an event yourself with friends this Rosh Hashanah (Sept 29th-Oct 1st) and join others in your city to break-the-fast on Yom Kippur (October 8th-9th).
