Each winter break and summer break, Hillel at Texas A&M sponsors a free Taglit-Birthright Israel trip. There is a $250 deposit required for birthright, which is refunded at the end of a successful trip. Students are often responsible for their own airfare to and from the destination city (often New York).
Registration for our mid-May 2014 Hillel at Texas A&M Taglit-Birthright Israel trip begins on February 19. Register on the Hillel birthright page and select Texas A&M as your school to take the Hillel bus with your fellow Aggies and Jewish Student Life Coordinator Veronica Beskin.
Taglit-Birthright Israel is an innovative partnership between the people of Israel through the Government of Israel, private philanthropists through the Birthright Israel Foundation and Jewish communities around the world (North American Jewish Federations, Keren Hayesod, and The Jewish Agency for Israel). This trip is a gift from Taglit-Birthright Israel.
Other Travel Opportunities
Hillel participates in a variety of Alternative Break programs. Programs include trips to disaster-stricken areas to help rebuild, trips overseas to visit isolated Jewish communities.
