Support Israel Block Party

On March 22, we at Texas Hillel are hosting our flagship event for the school year, the Israel Block Party (IBP) on the East Mall of UT Campus. The Israel Block Party is the largest pro-Israel event on a college campus in North America and aims to highlight Israeli culture and progress to student community. The event will bring the culture and spirit of Israel right into the heart of campus and is anticipated to engage upwards of 7,000 students of all different backgrounds.

Although this is now the 19th Block Party, it seems as though it is needed more and more every year. With today’s rapidly changing political climate it is more important than ever that we take a strong stand to make sure that American support of Israel is one that does not waver. We can think of no better group to spread this message to than the future leaders who attend the University of Texas. At the Israel Block Party we aim not only to showcase all the values which make Israel the great country it is today, but also to empower the young members of the Jewish Community to get more involved and hone their leadership skills. While we are putting in the work to make this event happen every day, we cannot do it without the unwavering support of donors like you who have made this all possible year after year. It is with this in mind that we ask you to help us make this the most meaningful and impactful Israel Block Party yet! 

By investing in the Israel Block Party, you will be directly helping create positive, pro-Israel, outreach to thousands of college students, while also meeting Hillel's mission of inspiring the next generation of Jewish leaders.  Contributions made to the Israel Block Party are fully-tax deductible. Click here to donate online or if you prefer, checks can be made out and mailed to Texas Hillel, Attn: Israel Block Party 2105 San Antonio Street Austin, TX 78705.
