Post-High School/College

Even while away at school, participating in a gap-year program, or serving in the military, our post-high schoolers are still part of the community! Our rabbis, cantor, and staff are available by phone, email, and social media, and we always look forward to reconnecting in person when they are back home for school breaks or summer. We’re also here to serve as resources for those who are applying to college or other post-high school programs, too!

Jewish Identity, Zionism, and Antisemitism on Campus:
A Conversation with Jack Elbaum and Blake Flayton on The New Zionist Congress  


As you've likely heard, antisemitism continues to be on the rise in our country and around the world. Unfortunately, many college campuses have become hotbeds for this oldest form of hatred, manifesting itself in both traditional and new ways, often focussed around students' relationships with Israel. What you may not have heard is how defiant Jewish undergraduates are forming their own national organization dedicated to combating anti-Semitism and promoting Jewish pride. View this important discussion from Yom Ha'Atzmaut 5781 / Israeli Independence Day 2021 below to hear from NSCI's own Jack Elbaum as well as Blake Flayton, two student leaders from George Washington University, about The New Zionist Congress and their efforts to change the situation.
