BIRTHRIGHT ISRAEL

Due to growing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions at the University, local, and state level, Syracuse Hillel will not be hosting a winter 2020-2021 Birthright Israel trip. You can still apply for a future trip and save your spot in line at freeisraeltrip.org/syracuse!

Birthright Israel: Hillel trips connects 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 Hillel professionals and experience Jewish history and Israeli culture through unforgettable tours, hikes, and unique activities.
