Four Elon students were selected to participate in a free 10-day trip to Israel during the December break through Taglit-Birthright Israel.
The four students – Olivia Ackerman, Jesse Unger, Julie Morse, and MacKenzie Cooke – were selected by Elon Hillel and Hillel International after completing a lengthy application and interview process. They will travel to Israel with students from Princeton University, Washington and Lee University, Bucknell University and Union College.
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.
