Go to Israel for Free!

If you are Jewish, between the ages of 18-26, and have never been on a peer-organized trip you could be eligible for Hillel’s Taglit birthright Israel trip! If you have already been on a peer-organized trip, you can go back to Israel on one of many travel or study programs.

Want to travel with friends from your school and make new ones? And meet students from across the country? Hillel’s Explore Israel Campus Trip is the program for you! Sign up to go with other students from Hillel at UCSD! This year (for the first time!) we are offering a SUMMER August Birthright trip.
