Through Taglit-Birthright Israel and follow-through activities, along with our Masa Israel Journey and Onward Israel internship initiative, UM Hillel encourages and enables thousands of students to travel to Israel every year. Through additional partnerships, Hillel supports students’ return trips to Israel.
As University of Miami’s only official Birthright Israel program, UM Hillel is proud to offer enhanced Birthright Israel experiences tailored to the University of Miami community. As the largest provider of Birthright Israel trips in South Florida, hundreds of UM students participate in our Birthright Israel programs each year. The best time to go on a Birthright Israel trip is now! Join us in December or May for the adventure of a lifetime!
Are you a campus leader interested in seeing Israel for yourself? If you answered yes, this trip is for you! Join us this December 2019 on the University of Miami’s first-ever Campus Leaders trip to Israel. We will be selecting 20 campus leaders from diverse backgrounds to join us on a highly subsidized trip to Israel.
This highly subsidized 8-week professional internship program allows Jewish college students attending Miami area universities to live in Tel Aviv, intern in a field of their choice gaining valuable professional experience, and explore Israel. Students will have opportunities to learn about the Miami community’s investment in Israel, and learn how to create Israel engagement when they return to Miami.
Choose between five and ten months programs in Israel: Spend 5 months advancing your career in Israel’s start-up nation Tel Aviv OR spend 10 months on the Hillel: Masa Israel teaching fellows program, teaching English to kids and making a difference in Haifa
UM Hillel is dedicated to creating a culture of civility on campus. Through partnerships with campus based Israel education and advocacy organizations, UM Hillel is proud to offer opportunities for students to engage with Israel from diverse perspectives.
“We didn’t even know each other prior to Birthright. Within 10 short days we’ve come to understand how fortunate we are to be Jewish…it was a once in a lifetime experience and a bond we will share forever.”
