Welcome to
UF Hillel



Birthright Israel is a free 10 day trip, Jewish students will be able to explore, taste, and connect to the land of Israel with their fellow Gators. Highlights from our top-rated trips include floating in the Dead Sea, sleeping under the stars in the desert, dancing the night away in Tel Aviv, visiting the holy Western Wall, eating Israeli treats in Jerusalem's open air market, and so much more.

Registration is currently open for UF Hillel's December 2024 Birthright Israel trip. This trip will depart from Miami on December 15 and return on December 26. When registering, please make sure to select Israel Outdoors as your trip organizer.


Given the limited capacity and expected high demand we encourage all interested students to register as soon as possible to help secure your spot.

UF Hillel works hard to support students and their families when they are at their best and when they might need some additional care and attention. 

Our free, customizable Care Packages bring care and comfort to Jewish Gators when they are not feeling their very best. They include your choice of kosher matzo ball soup, Gatorade, tissues, snacks, cough drops, and other necessities to help Gators get well soon.

Friday night Shabbat dinner to-go can also be added for Care Packages delivered on Friday's only.
