Aviv Spring Break Trip
Each year Hillel organizes an international Spring Break Mission Trip. We take 15-20 students to South America for a week of community service, interacting with the local Jewish Community, site seeing, and a day at the beach. Past service projects have been building houses for the homeless in Uruguay, building a community center in Rio de Janiero, and repairing a Jewish Cemetery in Cuba.
This year Vanderbilt Hillel went to Colombia! Students and staff enjoyed an incredible 9 days in Bogota and Santa Marta, touring the nation’s important sites, meeting the Colombian Jewish community, doing community service and even spending time at the beach.
