Empowering students to navigate Jewish life on campus
Antisemitism on college campuses is rising at an alarming rate and young adults are ill equipped to manage the challenges they may face. Most are unaware of organizations on campus that engage in Jewish life. In response, TribeTalk provides resources for high school seniors so they can research and compare Jewish life on multiple college campuses. In addition, TribeTalk produces insightful webinars and podcasts that present different experience of Jewish life on campus as well as in-depth discussions on relevant issues.
