Birthright Israel
with uf hillel

Birthright Israel is a free, 10-day trip for Jewish students to explore Israel together.

UF to Israel is the premiere campus provider for Israeli adventures, tailored to University of Florida students. Each summer and winter, we embark on multiple trips, immersing students in all things Israel. Our mission is to give every Jewish Gator the opportunity to visit Israel.

 

Our University of Florida trips are designed for University of Florida students to experience Israel with a Jewish Gator community. We welcome family and friends interested in joining our trips on a limited basis. Our UF to Israel trips are organized through Israel Outdoors, a Birthright Israel trip provider. More information about our trips can be found on the Israel Outdoors website: israeloutdoors.com/florida

You're eligible for this trip if you're between 18-32 years old and of Jewish descent with at least one Jewish parent (or you converted). You also must have graduated high school by the time of the trip, and you can't be attending a full-time Jewish studies program. Finally, this must be your first Jewish peer trip to Israel since turning 18. 

No matter which trip you choose you will have an experience you will never forget.  Why wait? REGISTER TODAY! Check out our options for our summer trips below:

Awaits...

Experience an authentic view of Israel as you travel on and off the beaten track. You’ll get to explore Tel Aviv, ride a camel through the Negev desert, dance your heart out while experiencing Israeli nightlife, float in the Dead Sea at the lowest place on earth, sleep under the stars in the middle of the desert, and wander through Jerusalem, overflowing with our rich and amazing history.

 "Israel Outdoor Adventure  was  one of the best experiences of my life. From stargazing in the Negev desert to tanning by the Dead Sea, my  ten days were filled with action, adventure, and of course, friendship.  I'm so grateful that UF Hillel gave me this amazing opportunity to travel and learn more about my history and culture.  "
