JDC Alternative Spring Break Trip

The annual overseas JDC Entwine trip is just around the corner.  This year undergraduate students from Texas Hillel will travel to Argentinawhere students will gain an in-depth understanding of Latin America’s largest Jewish community, connect with peers and local Jewish institutions and engage a new group of students in JDC’s global work.  This global Jewish service program makes a life-changing impact on its participants!

"Travelling to Argentina was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had through Hillel. As someone who hasn't had the opportunity to travel much, it was inspiring to see a different culture and to get the chance to meet the Jewish community of Buenos Aires. We made global Jewish connections and realized the similarities between Jews around the world-- even as we have different national cultures."  -Graeme Campbell, Jewish Studies and History major, Houston, TX

We are raising funds for the 2018 trip so that every student who wants to participate may do so regardless of financial barriers.  To help us raise our goal of $20,000, a generous donor has pledged to matched every dollar raised.  This means your donation will be DOUBLED and you have the opportunity to make twice the lasting impact on our students.  Any amount will make a difference! 

Thank you so much for your generous support in continuing our Texas tradition.

If you prefer to donate by check, mail to Texas Hillel, Attn: Alicia Garnes, 2105 San Antonio Street Austin, TX 78705.
