  • Building Bridges- GW Hillel brings a cohort of student leaders of all religious, political, and academic backgrounds to Israel and the Palestinian Territories over spring break for an intensive educational journey. The purpose of the trip is to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the ground, shedding an intentional light on complexities and nuances. Together, you will ask questions and listen with deep empathy. The purpose of this trip is not to solve or resolve the conflict in the Middle East, but to approach the topic with curiosity and the desire for open dialogue. We will focus on the stories and lives of the diverse people, groups, religions, and populations in the region. Apply for the opportunity to engage in conversation and learn with some of the most promising student leaders on our campus. Contact Noam​. Applications open in Fall 2023.
