The Kedma Cohort launched in September 2019. 50 gap-year students from 14 seminaries from all over Israel were selected to participate in monthly activities that were geared at introducing these women to Israeli society through volunteering. These students were chosen to participate in the Cohort because they expressed a passion and commitment to volunteerism. The Cohort enabled these women to develop this passion by volunteering with and getting to know different aspects of Israeli society each month. These activities included giving out food to the homeless in Jerusalem, hosting a Channukah party at Girls’ Town, volunteering at Leket Israel, and celebrating Rosh Chodesh Adar at an Assisted Living facility.
