Jewish Contacts on Campus

Promote your programs; Be a resource to prospective students

Many of you have noticed that KOACH has been slowly getting more and more electronic, from communicating with students over email instead of snail mail to, as of this year, changing the format of the KOACH on Campus newsletter from print to web. We have made the KOACH website a little easier to navigate and just a little jazzier as well.

The next step is to make it easier for students from various universities, or prospective students, to find the Conservative students or student group on their campus and to connect to our international organization. To that end, we will be setting up a page here on the international KOACH website with links and contact information for the various campus groups’ sites.

Here’s where you come in! If you are an active student and/or a student leader in the Conservative movement or connected to KOACH at your University, please send your campus group’s website address to me, winick@uscj.org. Please include:

  • Primary contact name
  • Email address
  • Mailing address
  • Website address

Also, I would really appreciate it if you would add a link to KOACH’s site, www.koach.org, onto your site, to keep us all connected. If you hold a great program, have a wonderful idea, are hosting a regional conference, or just have something you want to post, let us know, and we will post the information and/or photos either on our calendar, or with your University’s listing.

Along that line, you should all know that we have a postable listserve for on-line discussions at koach@uscj.org. Drop a line to the listserve and check out the responses to your comment.

We hope that keeping our communities electronically connected and communicating will help to foster a greater sense of the wider Conservative community and the support it holds for each of us.

B’Shalom,
