Every Spring-semester we conduct a student mission to Poland for the overseas students studying at Hebrew University, Tel Aviv University and Ben Gurion University. Our student mission is led by one of the premier educators of Yad Vashem, Ms. Hazy Flint. The four day mission includes traveling to several of the Concentration Camps including Treblinka, Majdanek & Auschwitz. Shabbat is in Krakow enabling the students to see a once vibrant city that was filled with Jewish life and is now desolate.
Throughout the semester we arrange small group learning sessions and one-on-one learning sessions on a variety of topics to give the students an opportunity to learn concepts and texts they were not exposed to in the past.
We host Football watching parties with pizza and beer on Sunday Nights and throughout the NFL Playoffs.
Each Monday night we host a women’s program, including a lecture series, one-on-one learning sessions and a variety of programs geared to women including challah baking, zumba classes, mikveh tour and more.
Every Shabbat we host dinner at our student Center giving students an opportunity to socialize and experience an authentic Shabbat experience.
Super bowl party – Our annual late night Super Bowl Party on 2 big screens is the place to be to watch the Big Game.
As part of our women’s programming, each semester we have a shabbaton with programming specifically geared to women including trips and information about “women in Judaism”.
Gan Sacher in Jerusalem is the place to be on Yom Haatzmaut and our BBQ is the largest in Gan Sacher with over 300 attendees.

Launched in August 2015 as a response to the rising tide of global anti-Semitism in University campuses, our advocacy program is giving students the tools to combat BDS, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic groups upon return to their home Universities.
During the fall academic semester, we conducted a Shabbaton in Prague for 26 students from our 3 University Centers. Our three day Shabbaton combines the Jewish Historical sites such as the Maharal Synagogue and the Terezin (Theresienstadt) Concentration Camps, as well as the Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge.
Each semester we host an open house BBQ at our Center to welcome the new students, introduce them to the numerous Jeff Seidel Student Programs, and kick-off the semester.
Our South American students love soccer, and we host them for dinner and all the Champions League games throughout the European season.
