Free Birthright Israel Trip

Explore Israel for FREE with your friends from College of Charleston, or meet new friends.


Hillel trips connect Jewish students and young professionals to their Jewish journey and identities, to Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, and, upon return, to their Jewish communities. All Hillel trips will provide a variety of meaningful Jewish experiences for young adults from all Jewish backgrounds to explore their tradition. On this trip, participants will explore Jewish history, Israeli history, and current Israeli life through exciting tours, hikes, and unique activities. 

Explore Israel Together

In addition to the major sites of Israel – Masada, the Dead Sea, and the Western Wall, we’ll take you to amazing places you didn’t even know existed. Ride a camel at the Bedouin tent, go Jeeping in the Golan, have lunch in a Druze village, and meet Ethiopian children at an absorption center. And of course, in addition to your American peers, you will be traveling with new Israeli friends and getting to know the real Israel.
