AU Hillel brings dozens of students to Israel each winter and summer on our campus Birthright Israel trips. Students can climb Masada, touch the Western Wall, float in the Dead Sea, and so much more - all for free, and all with fellow AU students! Our next trip is scheduled for early January, 2024; registration will open in September.
Birthright Israel is an innovative partnership between the State of Israel, private philanthropists, and Jewish communities around the world.
Israel Narratives Fellowship
It's often hard to express our thoughts and feelings when it comes to Israel. The Israel Narratives Fellowship will help students explore their individual relationships with Israel and develop the language and skills to effectively share their personal Israel narratives with others - regardless of politics.
AU Perspectives is Hillel’s campus leaders trip to Israel. This unique program provides undergraduate student leaders from a wide range of backgrounds with a unique opportunity to explore the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in all its complexity. Participants visit critical sites in the region and meet with Israeli and Palestinian politicians, journalists, and activists. Our next trip is scheduled for May 2024.
