JAM (Jewish Awareness Movement) is an on campus club servicing numerous college campuses throughout Southern California.
JAM was initially founded in 1996 by Rabbi Moshe and Bracha Zaret. Each year, JAM brings groups of students on a three week trip to Israel during winter and summer break. The Israel Trip combines exploring Jewish topics in the mornings and touring the country, rappelling, camel riding, horseback riding, climbing Massada and more in the afternoons. JAM also offers a 10-day Birthright option.
JAM also runs 10 day winter and spring break trips to New York. The New York trip offers a select group of 50 college students hotel accommodations at the beautiful Carlton Hotel on Madison Ave. Students hear from world class educators on Jewish topics in the mornings, and tour the Big Apple in the afternoons. JAM also offers a subsidized trip to the AIPAC convention, with additional touring and programs.
The JAM London Trip also takes place each year during school breaks. A group of 30 students are hosted in community homes for a week in Jewish London. Inspiring lecturers teach classes in the mornings, and the afternoons feature touring at Windsor Castle, The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and other sites.
There is also a whole array of events offered at each cumpus. Some are weekly, some are occasional, but all guarantee a good time! JAM Rabbis specialize in Barbeques, challah baking, sushi making and chocolate fondue. (All JAM events must have good food.) JAM events range from educational and inspiring to fun and social.
