      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).

      Whats the application like?

      You can find out more about the application process and eligibility requirements here. You can also meet with Ellie (emfromst@bu.edu) to go over it together.

      Do I have to be religious?

      Nope! Birthright is for anyone and everyone regardless of how “Jewish” you are.
