  • North Carolina Hillel Students Condemn Discriminatory Legislation

    This legislation undermines these deeply held tenets, while contradicting the equal protections ostensibly guaranteed to all American citizens and North Carolina residents alike.

  • Birthright Israel | Bus 229 connects past and present
    Dec 28, 2015
    Kotel Winter 2015Although almost our entire trip has been pure fun and enjoyment, we took a day off of our fun shenanigans to visit Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Memorial.

We landed around 8 p.m. last night after our short layover in Brussels, and started making our way through customs, money exchange, and getting our Israeli phones. From the airport we drove straight to Itay’s kibbutz, Ginosaur, on the Sea of Galilee.
