Camp Counselors Needed in Israel June 20-July 22, 2019

Kefiada is JUF’s English-immersion, American style day camp in Kiryat Gat-Lachish-Shafir, Israel. Kefiada counselors are college students from Chicago or go to school in Illinois. Kefiada serves as a bridge over the summer for Israeli 4th – 6th grade 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 a part of Israeli life and help Israelis in a meaningful way. There is no program cost, plus free room and board and $1200 flight stipends for all counselors. June 20-July 22, 2019. Application deadline is April 5, 2019. Applications, and FAQ, can be found at www.juf.org/kefiada

Let's Get Together: An Interfaith Journey Toward Justice

Join a group of young people armed with strong bonds of friendship, a deep sense of shared purpose, and leadership skills which will allow them to be change-agents in their communities. The trip will include trips to the Civil Rights Museum, Little Rock High School, and lobbying opportunities in Springfield, IL. A goal of the program is students will return to Chicago, changed. African American students will have bonded with their Jewish peers in exploring how much they have in common both historically and in present day. Jewish students will do the same. Both sets of students will have personal relationships and experiences which will shape them into the sort of concerned citizens who feel a mutual responsibility for each other's welfare.
