Who we are

‘Yachad’ (meaning ‘togetherness’) is a Jewish/Israeli student society open to Jews and Israelis as well as to anyone interested in either of these subjects. Those who are not Jewish or Israeli are welcome to join the society and participate in events organised by Yachad.


Our primary aims

The aim of the society is to unite Jewish and Israeli students studying in Latvia, and include everyone else interested in the Jewish/Israeli culture to learn from and about each other.

What we do

We offer:

  • help regarding the study process;
  • assistance with student life in Riga;
  • celebration of Jewish and Israeli holidays;
  • social events such as - parties, student seminars, language exchange evenings, city tours etc.
