Taglit-Birthright Israel




Stony Brook Hillel is excited to be partnering with Hillel International to offer our very own trip of Seawolves! 

Birthright Israel: Hillel trips connect Jewish students to their Jewish journey and identities, to Israel as the
homeland of the Jewish people, and, upon return, to their Jewish communities. Students are led through Israel
by Jewish professionals and will experience Jewish history and Israeli culture through unforgettable tours,
hikes, and unique activities.

If you are a Stony Brook Undergraduate student and identify as Jewish (religiously or culturally) you may be eligible!
