Jewish Immersion Journeys

At Elon, our Jewish experiences are not limited to the university’s beautiful campus. We offer spring break trips and other ways for students to participate in high impact experiences off campus that enhance their undergraduate Jewish experience.

Hillel Spring Break is Elon Hillel’s cornerstone immersive experience, and provides a meaningful and relevant experience of Jewish life elsewhere in the world — from a social justice trip to Los Angeles, to a disaster relief visit to the Caribbean islands, or a cultural innovation experience in Argentina.

Elon Hillel’s Spring Break Trips are partially possible thanks to the generosity of alumna Sydnie Krause ’11, who created a fund to support student participation in Hillel’s trips. Read about the fund and Sydnie’s decision to support Hillel Spring Break.
