Support Alternative Spring Break

UNC Hillel students are participating in an Alternative Spring Break Trip to New York! 

Six students have committed their week-long spring break to go and serve those in need and to learn about the intersections surrounding Judaism and Justice. Students will travel to Brooklyn, NY with Repair The World, an organization committed to connecting young Jews with meaningful service  

We need your help and support: 

To make this trip possible, each student needs to raise around $200 which brings our group total to $1200. You can support our students by clicking the "support" button by their profiles or contribute to the group's fund by donating online here. To support us by sending cash or check, please send an envelope to:

Attn: Rabbi Melissa Simon

If you have any questions about our ASB trip or why we are doing them, please reach out. We would love to share what's happening in the life at Hillel with you.

Learn about these six unique students and what moves them to sacrifice their spring break to improve their community.

I'm a junior Jewish studies and Sociology  double major at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. I am excited to go to New York with NC Hillel's Alternative Spring Break in partnership with Repair the World. This trip bridges two of my passions -  Judaism and social justice - and is a great opportunity for me to learn more about faith-based organizing.

Hello my name is Leah Simon.
I'm a Sophomore at UNC studying Global Studies most likely. I am passionate about hands on service and its intersection with Judaism as well as interacting with people of different backgrounds so I'm beyond thrilled to be going on the Alternative Spring Break trip to New York City with Repair the World. We all would so greatly appreciate any support you would be able to offer to make our tip possible or if you could help spread the word about us that would be immensely appreciated as well.
