Taglit: Birthright Israel
Thanks to the Birthright Israel Foundation, every Winter and Summer Break, Oregon Hillel sends a bus of students from the University of Oregon and Oregon State University on a free 10 day trip to Israel. This gift from Birthright Israel is an opportunity for students to go through a journey of self-discovery and develop their own sense of connection to Israel, and Judaism. Going with Oregon Hillel enables students to go with others in their community, creating memorable experiences and life long friendships back on campus and beyond. Join us on our next trip for an experience that is full of adventure, knowledge, and exploration. For more information please contact Andy Gitelson.

Looking for an interfaith experience?
Oregon Hillel runs two Perspectives trips, each one campus specific. Perspectives is an undergraduate student leadership journey to Israel and the Palestinian Territories primarily Jewish and NonJewish students. This program educates undergraduate student leaders about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, shining an intentional light on the complexities and nuances in an immersive and experiential way. This selective program seeks students who are greatly motivated to gain a deeper understanding of Israelis and Palestinians and to share what they learn with their broader campus community. We are open to any questions about any aspect of the trip at any time. For more information please contact Andy Gitelson directly.
