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 Perspectives trip. We hope to run our next Perspective trip in May 2021. If you are interested in participating or have questions about Syracuse Hillel's Perspectives trip, contact Jillian Juni.


Perspectives is Syracuse Hillel's leadership journey to Israel and the West Bank. The purpose of this program is to educate emerging and current SU undergraduate student leaders about the region, shining an intentional light on the nuances of life there, in an immersive and experiential way. Our intention is to enable SU students to make up their own minds about Israel and the complexities of the Middle East. Upon returning to Syracuse, participants will share what they learned with the broader SU community. This is a highly selective, unique experience for student leaders, regardless of their religion. 

You must be a registered Syracuse University undergraduate student to participate in this trip. Graduating Seniors are not eligible to participate.

Students selected for this initiative will participate on a highly-subsidized 10-day educational journey to Israel and the West Bank. We will visit key sites and cities, hear from a diverse group of high level speakers, and gain understanding about the geopolitical challenges on the ground.

Syracuse Hillel, in partnership with Maccabee Task Force, will cover all flights, hotels, and travel throughout the trip, as well as two meals per day. For more information about Maccabee Task Force you can visit their website here.
