Michigan Hillel is excited to offer multiple opportunities this year.

Fall Break, October 14-16

Join Hillel as we work in Detroit with Repair the World: Detroit. Repair the World is a social justice Jewish organization with many locations around the country. This trip has costs associated with it, however we will work to lower the cost through grants and scholarships.

In Detroit, we will be working with local food banks, such as the Mercado, Keep Growing Detroit, and Project Healthy Community.  Another aspect of our trip will focus on the youth in Detroit. We will be working with Brilliant Detroit, a family-centered, neighborhood-based organization dedicated to children’s success. Outside of volunteering, we are able to explore the city including a trip to the Eastern Market and the waterfront!
