All students whose academic studies are on hold following the Hurricane Katrina disaster are invited to spend the semester or academic year in Israel NOW. The Jewish Agency and MASA - the Gateway to Israel Programs partnership between the Jewish Agency and the Government of Israel - have created a special coalition of Israeli Universities and Hillel - the Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, to enable these students to immediately continue their studies. Five major Israeli universities have accelerated and simplified their acceptance procedures for all students in need. All Jewish students accepted into these Overseas Studies Programs are eligible for MASA scholarships. MASA is working on arranging a special grant to cover plane fare to Israel and partial tuition costs. A special immediate Hebrew Ulpan at the universities will be created, with the help of MASA. We expect credits to be transferable.

Please distribute this information to your constituents and out to the community to assist these students in their time of need. All interested students should contact Rachel Brown, Israel Programs Coordinator at 212-339-6903 or e-mail at: rachelbr //at// jazo.org.il and/or masainfo //at// masaisrael.org.

Cross-Cultural Solutions is an alternative for students for the fall semester.

CCS operates international volunteer programs around the world. Many students receive academic credit for the program and they offer internships as well.

They are offering a scholarship for any student displaced by Katrina.

I spoke to Rachel Brown the program coordinator and she is most helpful. All the participating schools have extended their deadlines and will also help any student that needs it in any way.

SCHOALRSHIPS at Hebrew University!!!

Hebrew University to Accept Students from Closed Tulane University in New Orleans September 07 2005
A helping hand has been extended by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the form of accepting students from New Orleans whose studies have been interrupted by Hurricane Katrina.

Hebrew University President Prof. Menachem Magidor said that the university made this decision following the announcement by Tulane University, New Orleans’ largest institution of higher learning, that it would have to shut down for the fall semester.

Students from New Orleans will be accepted into the Hebrew University’s Rothberg International School for a semester or year’s studies and will be housed in the university’s Mt. Scopus dormitories.

The provost of the Rothberg International School, Prof. Jaime Kapitulnik, left last Thursday for the U.S. in order to further arrangements for accepting the students. There, he is meeting with students and various organizations, including representatives of the Jewish community of New Orleans and heads of Tulane University who are now in Houston, Texas.

“In order to ease the way for the students, we will shorten the acceptance process,” said Prof. Kapitulnik. “We will also adjust our studies in accordance with their needs and will provide scholarships.”

At this stage, the university is preparing to extend 20 scholarships, but if necessary this will be extended to additional students

On the night of Thursday, November 17th, Tulane alumni, students, and supporters will hold fundraising events all across America to raise money for the hurricane relief effort in Louisiana. We will partner with America's Second Harvest and many supporters to raise money for the victims of Hurrican Katrina. America's Second Harvest provides to the food banks that are feeding thousands of refugees.

Events can be as simple as asking a bar to donate 10% of their sales on the 17th or they can be more elaborate events, like a concert or (in true Tulane style) a drag show.

Please join the effort by organizing an event in your town. Email TulaneReliefEffort@yahoo.com your name, location, and Tulane affiliation for more information.

Be prepared for the next national hurricane center web site or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
