Israel at BU

BU connects hundreds of students to Israel each year and is proud to be among the nation’s largest campuses to send students to Israel on Birthright.  Whether it’s through Israeli culture, political discussions, music, film, conversation, advocacy or even travel, BU is committed to helping students find their Israel voice.  We have many ways to get involved in Israel initiatives on campus as well as ways to travel to Israel for FREE!  And as always, the staff at BU Hillel is here to help foster new ideas and ways to engage and get back to Israel.
