BE THE LINK
Explore our past and be inspired to shape our future.
The persecution of our tribe during the Holocaust, and how we live as Jews today, connects us with the future of our people. Chabad on Campus explores this vital connection during LivingLinks, an inspirational seven-day Poland trip for college students.
Eye-opening and life-changing, the weeklong journey traverses through cemeteries, death camps, ghettos and other vestiges of Jewish life and loss across Poland. It affirms the need for a strong Jewish presence in Israel and among the diaspora. It may even spark a desire to strengthen your own Jewish commitment.

Fee includes airfare to Poland and all trip costs (food, lodging and travel) except tips to the local staff (bus driver, tour guides, etc.) and spending money. There’s a fully-refundable $150 security deposit, to be returned after you complete the trip and a post-trip survey. Actual cost is $2,500 per person. We are able to offer a highly-reduced cost thanks to the support from generous Chabad on Campus donors.
This trip is open to all Jewish students, whether affiliated or not. It is also open to those interested in furthering their Jewish education. All classes and readings will be in English.
No. The trip itinerary is very full. While students will have built in free time, it will be within the framework of a tight schedule. In addition, due to security concerns, students must remain with the group at all times.
Your safety is our number one priority. Our program does not travel to or through certain higher risk areas. We will be accompanied by an armed guard for the entire duration of the trip. We also monitor safety updates and we will cancel or modify specific trips as needed.
There will be rolling acceptance, based on eligibility. We will begin processing applications on December 20, 2021. We endeavor to process all applications within three weeks.
If you are accepted to the program, you will be notified about how to proceed with submitting your payment and confirming your place. Be sure to follow those steps to secure your place.
Students need valid passports. American, Canadian, Australian and United Kingdom citizens (and many others) do not need visas. If you do require a visa, you will need to contact our office to arrange the necessary documents. Your passport will need to be valid for at least six months from the date of your return to the U.S.
There will be WIFI in all of the places we stay. You can also check with your local cell provider about international roaming plans.
There are many factors that the acceptance committee takes into consideration, including but not limited to: demographic, school, quality of applicant, involvement in local Chabad and references.
All students must be at the airport four hours prior to departure. If you are flying into New York, we recommend that you arrive with plenty of time to spare in case of delays.
