Birthright Israel

Birthright Israel trips connect Jewish students and young professionals to their Jewish journey and identities, to Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, and, upon return, to their Jewish communities. All Hillel trips will provide a variety of meaningful Jewish experiences for young adults from all Jewish backgrounds to explore their tradition. On this trip, participants will explore Jewish history, Israeli history, and current Israeli life through exciting tours, hikes, and unique activities. 

We organize both a Winter trip as well as a Spring trip. Many students choose to participate with Miami Hillel, but there are opportunities to join one of many other Birthright Israel trips. Our Israel fellow, Lior Bezalel, can help navigate a student’s journey to Israel.
