Student Testimonials

“Birthright Hillel is an unparalleled experience- the sights, sounds, and tastes of Israel could not have been better explored than with them. I greatly enjoyed my ten days there, and know that I not only experienced a new culture, but learned so much more about myself and my religion as well as made long lasting friendships. I could not have asked for anything better!”

– Max Meyerson, Class of 2020


“I am so glad that I chose to go on Birthright through Hillel because the friendships I forged and experiences I had would not have otherwise been possible. It’s so special to be able to not only have that kind of transformative experience that Birthright offers, but also bring it home with you in the form of a new community. I would go on Birthright again in a heartbeat.”
– Melanie Taylor, Class of 2022
