UF to Israel has three main travel opportunities for UF Students to connect with Israel: Birthright Israel, Onward Israel, and Passages. Each trip is unique in its offerings. Our goal is to offer trips to Israel to all UF students No matter their religion, cultural background, or political beliefs.
Birthright Israel is a ten day trip to Israel designed to help Jewish students reconnect to their history and culture.
The official departure dates for the Summer 2021 Season are currently under review. Students should expect trips to happen in the later months of the Summer.
