“Birthright was the trip of a lifetime. The country was beautiful and I met great friends, ate great food, and rode a camel!” – Alden Lebov CAS 20′
A Providence, R.I. native, Danielle Neeman has served as BU Hillel’s Birthright Coordinator since August of 2017. Danielle received her B.S. in Psychology and Neuroscience from Syracuse University. While at S.U. she became deeply involved in the Hillel community after participating in the university’s Birthright trip. After college, Danielle embarked on a number of journeys, from conservation research in the Costa Rican jungle, to working in the Israeli desert as a research assistant at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and the Interuniversity Institute in Eilat. She was also a marketing intern for Livnot U’Lehibanot in the city of Tzfat where she had the pleasure of getting to know many Birthright participants! If shes not dancing along the way, she’s taking photos of unsuspecting wildlife.
Who organizes the trip?
Boston University Hillel has teamed up with Israel Outdoors to provide an amazing trip to Israel.
Can I bring non-BU friends?
Absolutely! If there is space on the trip we’d love you to bring them.
Are there other opportunities to travel to Israel after Birthright?
Yes! There are many options from interning through Onward Israel or Masa Israel to applying to The David Project. Let us know what you’re interested in and we’ll help find the best opportunity for you.
What do I have to pay?
The trip is absolutely free! Birthright covers two meals a day, transportation, lodging, and all of the activities. Be prepared to pay for lunch every day and souvenirs (if you want them). A tip is also suggested (for our awesome drivers and tour educators).

Do I have to be religious?
