KEDMA is a campus student organization for
Orthodox Judaismon many college and university campuses and in many Hillels in the United States. [See, e.g., Kedma at the University of Maryland, http://www.studentorg.umd.edu/kedma/about.html]
The group strives to create an atmosphere on U.S. college campuses that is comfortable for Orthodox students, many of whom require the availability of regular Friday night and Saturday morning
Shabbatservices and kosherfood on campus.
These efforts can help to mainstream Orthodox students who would otherwise be forced to commute and live at home, or to attend a university designed for an Orthodox student population.
