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!
Birthright Israel is an innovative partnership between the State of Israel, private philanthropists, and Jewish communities around the world.

Fellows meet over tapas throughout the semester; those who fulfill the Fellowship expectations will earn a stipend. No prior experience with the topic required.
