Jewish Students to Take Advantage of Record-breaking Winter and Snow: Aish Connections is hosting two 10 day trips to New York this winter break for Jewish college students. For just $249, students will have the chance to try a range of winter sporting activities including skiing, snow tubing and snowboarding. Evenings will be spent visiting New York City - a winter wonderland.

With summer a distant memory, nights getting darker and cool weather fast approaching, now is the perfect time to start thinking about winter break. Forecasters are already predicting that this coming winter will be another epic season. Long-range weather specialist, James Madden, states “this could be a potentially record-breaking US winter for 2011-2012 with exceptional levels of snow”. A great opportunity to go skiing.

But with the economic recovery dragging and prices soaring, ski trips are just not in the budget for most students – until now! Cash-strapped Jewish college students are being offered the opportunity to experience the thrill of a snow sports holiday combined with the bright lights of New York City at an amazingly affordable price.

Aish Connections will once again be offering, ‘Winter Rush’, two 10-day trips this winter in New York. Not sure which winter sport to tackle? Now’s the chance to have a go at them all! Participants will have the chance to try anything from ice-climbing to snowboarding and everything in between. If all that activity wasn’t enough, rest assured they’ll be plenty of chance for après-ski entertainment including – ice-skating in Central Park, delicious dining and more.

"Last year’s Winter Rush trip was an unbelievable experience! I went in just hoping to make new people and have a great vacation. It ended up being a really spiritually invigorating journey and I made some incredible long-lasting Jewish friends." Hal Cohen, 21, Arizona State University.

The generously subsidized price from Aish Connections is in order to make the trip accessible and affordable for all students. For just $249, Jewish college students will have the chance to experience the ultimate winter sports getaway, meet other Jewish college students, and get to explore and spend time in the city that never sleeps!
