"Birthright was one of the most meaningful experiences of my life! From seeing the beauty of the Negev to the history of Jerusalem, the trip left me in awe- and going with a bunch of kids my age only made it that much more amazing. Going with the Cornell Hillel was the best decision I ever made. The only thing I regret is that I can't go every year!"

We are both really excited to go on Big Red Birthright with Cornell Hillel this summer. We're so ready to experience Israeli culture in a peer setting, and cannot wait to meet everyone else going on the trip!
