Hillel Birthright Israel trips connect Jewish students to their Jewish journey and identities, to Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, and, upon return, to their Jewish communities. Students are led through Israel by Jewish professionals and will experience Jewish history and Israeli culture through unforgettable tours, hikes, and unique activities. Israel for its beauty, depth, and challenges entails endless learning opportunities. Therefore, it is a main key in our efforts to ensure the vibrant future of the Jewish people by strengthening Jewish identity, Jewish communities, and connection with Israel.
