North Carolina Hillel is dedicated to the Jewish values of Tzedek and Tikkun Olam (Justice and Repairing the World). Hillel’s Alternative Break trips involve travel, service learning, education, and cultural exploration, both domestically and internationally. Our ABs provide a unique opportunity for students to participate in immersive experiences, modeling a philosophy of global engagement and the Jewish value of tikkun olam, or “repairing the world.” The Alternative Break experience is not limited to our time away - our participants engage with one another before and after their trip, creating a unique micro-community on campus.
We are still working on solidifying our trip for Spring. Previous trips have included volunteering in New York, Nicaragua, and New Orleans. Please continue to check our website, as more information will be released soon.
