Elon Students Traveling to Israel with Taglit-Birthright and Hillel

Nine Elon students will travel to Israel in December for 10 days on a free trip provided through Taglit-Birthright Israel.

Students who will be traveling to Israel this winter: Britta Halvorson, Joseph Milone, Sydney Bear, Kimberly Gersh, Emily Cable, Alex Helman, Cody Haumann, Rachel Shwartsman (not shown: Johanna Markiewitz)

The students were selected by Elon Hillel and Hillel International after completing a lengthy application and interview process. Most of the students will be traveling together as a group, while several students will be on specialized trips designed around their interests or majors.

Taglit-Birthright Israel provides the gift of first time, peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26. The gift is funded through private philanthropists, the government of Israel, and local Jewish communities around the world.

This is the ninth group of students Elon has sent to Israel through the Taglit-Birthright organization.

Ginny Vellani, Hillel Development and Jewish Life Associate, will be staffing the Elon trip.
