Sarah Schwartz was looking for a unique way to spend her winter break. After learning about YU’s Center for the Jewish Future (CJF) Jewish Life Coast to Coast program, she became highly intrigued. The program, now in its fourth year, sends students across the country—introducing them to leaders and members of various Jewish communities, allowing them to share their Jewish knowledge and enthusiasm.
This winter break, 30 students from Yeshiva University and other colleges across the US will visit Texas as participants in the Jewish Life Coast to Coast Service Corps run by YU’s Center for the Jewish Future (CJF). The goal of the program, sponsored by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, is to create a life-shaping experience for the students by immersing them in Jewish communal life, exposing them to leadership opportunities across the country and providing them with the hands-on opportunity to help rebuild hurricane-damaged areas.
