Inter-seminary Choir competition

The Kedma-YU Inter-seminary Choir Competition is a hallowed tradition for gap-year students. Choir groups from numerous seminaries throughout Israel congregate at the Ramada Hotel in Jerusalem before a group over 1500-2000 women and perform numbers rich with song, dance, and meaning. In addition to being a fun inter-seminary event, this program also raises money for worthy charities helping women, such as Hachnasat Kallah funds and, most recently, Atara, an organization that works with young women at risk.
