A Wintern is a student intern, representing KAHAL in multiple cities abroad to serve the needs of their peers in select, popular study abroad destinations. Winterns engage peers through meaningful Jewish conversations, programs, and experiences. As a Wintern, you will begin engagement before students arrive in their study abroad destinations. Over the course of the Winter period, you will be responsible for:
- Conducting personal, ongoing outreach to KAHAL-identified study abroad students in your region
- Facilitating meaningful connections between Jewish study abroad and local Jewish students, families, and organizational opportunities in your region with the support and resources from KAHAL staff
- Serving as an ambassador of Jewish life to your peers, including advertising their attendance at programming, coordinating groups to attend existing programs, helping to facilitate Shabbat and Kashrut observance when needed, and more
- Identifying other Jewish students in your city who have not heard of KAHAL and can benefit from being part of the community
Assuming you fulfill your responsibilities as a Wintern, you will receive a stipend of $100 at the conclusion of the period.
