Camp counselors needed in Israel June 20-July 23, 2023
“Kef” means fun in Hebrew and Kefiada is JUF’s English-immersion, American-style day camp in Kiryat Gat-Lachish-Shafir, Israel. There is no program cost, plus free room and board and $1200 flight stipends for all counselors. Kefiada campers are 4th-6th graders and the counselors are college students from Chicago or go to school in Illinois. Kefiada serves as a bridge over the summer for Israeli students to retain the English that they have learned during the school year and expand on it. Kefiada is a great way for college students to get back to Israel, really become part of Israeli life and help Israelis in a meaningful way. The application and FAQ can be found at www.juf.org/kefiada.

Over the course of 10 days (June 20, 2023 – June 29, 2023), students will tour major heritage sites in Poland - once home to more than half of world Jewry - and help clean-up a cemetery. During this time, we will explore tools of genealogical research, learn about symbols and epitaphs on tombstones, the general state of Jewish cemeteries in Poland after the Holocaust, efforts to preserve them from both a communal, political, and Halachic perspective, and what lessons can be gleaned to inform our own life choices today.
The program is fully subsidized (except for a $400 registration fee to be paid upon acceptance). Rising second-fourth year undergraduate students in accredited colleges or universities are invited to apply.
