Alternative Spring Break

Lindsay Katona wrote up her spring break experience for NYU’s student newspaper. She coordinated and participated in a Jewish-Muslim Alternative Spring Break trip to New Orleans with a goal of bringing “15 Jews and 15 Muslims together to help rebuild New Orleans.” The idea came from the Edgar M. Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life. By Lindsay’s account the trip was not just successful but fun too. She shares some of the highlights of both the activities and the insights gained. For example: “There was a true openness to the views of others that I have never felt before in a group setting.”
