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, Hillel is head to Colombia! Students will spend time in the Colombian cities of Santa Marta and Bogota exploring it’s rich history and culture, interacting with local Colombian Jews, including Jewish university students, helping to set up a new synagogue and exploring the sensational South American beaches.
