Hillel at U of R is proud to provide two Taglit Birthright-Israel trips a year. Our winter and summer trips are a great way for students to connect to Israel and Judaism.
So when can I go?
Registration for our winter trip is open! Birthright has given our Hillel an entire bus just for us! This winter we will be in Israel from December 27th until January 8th. Spend New Years in Israel with an entire bus of your new best friends as we welcome 2018.
Birthright was the best way for me to meet new Jewish friends and it helped me explore and develop my Jewish identity. After traveling to Israel I felt a stronger connection to the state of Israel and the Jewish people.
