KOACH enhance your Jewish life calendar with our monthly education
This is just one of the myriad of ways that KOACH helps augment
your on-campus programming. These packets are designed to be adjustable
for available time and student background. They can be utilized for lunch

include text sheets (Hebrew, transliteration, and English), background
information, session leader materials and other related resources. It is
our hope that these materials will encourage conversations about the
materials and their relevance to students’ lives.
New packets will be added frequently. (Join
