We are proud to empower our 2,000+ students to find their individual connection to our Jewish homeland through opportunities to meet their Israel peers, learn about Israel’s history and culture, and travel with DU and CSU Hillel to Israel. Indeed, Israel engagement is one of Judaism’s – and Hillel’s – main pillars, a key to ensuring a vibrant future for the Jewish people.
As we explore and define our individual relationships with Israel we seek to connect a new generation with our Jewish homeland and strengthen our Jewish identities and community through our Israel programming and by taking them on a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Israel through our Hillel Birthright Israel Trips.

With media outlets anxious to provide us all negative news about Israel, Hillel Happenings will provide the positive side of our beautiful homeland. Last week, “Israeli Idol” featured Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” sang by Tamir Greenberg and Valeri Hamati. Tamir, an Israeli Jew, harmonizes beautifully with Valeri, an Israeli Arab from Jaffa, reminding us of the beautiful co-existence moments in this country.
