Birthright and Travels

Taglit-Birthright Israel

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).

Our Winter Break 2015 Jewish Aggies trip takes place from December 23, 2015 through January 3, 2016! Registration for our winter Texas A&M Taglit-Birthright Israel trip begins on Tuesday, September 8. Register or pre-register on the Mayanot Israel page to take the Jewish Aggie bus with your fellow Aggies!

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.
