Our goal for students is to experience Israel through immersive, educational, and engaging programs and trips in order to form a personal relationship with Israel.

BU Hillel stands with Israel. More Jews were murdered on October 7th (in Israel) than any time since the Holocaust. Right now our focus is on fighting antisemitism on campus, calling out hate, and standing up for Jewish students.

Israel Uncovered

Israel Uncovered is back and usually takes place each winter break!  If you are interested in registering for the trip, please email Lior Tibi ( to meet and learn more. 

The Israel Uncovered Mission educates student leaders to build enduring partnerships with a diverse array of student organizations through constructive dialogue about Israel. It has interfaith, geopolitical, and social justice components in order to expose Non-Jewish and Jewish student leaders to Israel through meaningful relationships. It aims to uncover Israel’s uniqueness and complexities so that Israel’s existence and vitality are integrated and valued on campus.


Building Bridges Internship

BU Hillel’s cross-community coalition-building internship; build relationships and create connections through cultural and social activities!

The interns will be mentored and in close connection with our Israel Fellow. To hear more details email
