Want To Visit Israel?

We are your first stop in finding the perfect Israel experience!

Hillel Ottawa in partnership with The Jewish Federation of Ottawa, Canada Israel Experience and Taglit-Birthright Israel has helped hundreds of students and young professionals in Ottawa get to Israel. This past year we have sent over 80 Ottawans to Israel for the experience of a lifetime. For so many the Birthright experience is the fuel that ignites the “Pintele Yid” (Jewish spark) for participation and involvement in the Jewish campus and greater community.

The opportunity to send students, for free to Israel is one the community has embraced. Our community banded together to maximize the number of Ottawa students who receive the gift of Birthright by encouraging enrollment. By doing this we proudly sent over 35 students from Ottawa to Israel in May alone. Continuing to build the partnership between Hillel Ottawa, The Jewish Federation of Ottawa and Canada Israel Experience will over time result in more students receiving the gift of Birthright and building a bigger and better community here in Ottawa.

Jerusalem Fellowships is an incredible three-week exploration of Israel and Jewish identity for students ages 19-26. It’s an ideal program for students looking for a meaningful first visit to Israel or for alumni of Birthright and other trips who are excited to go back. The JF program uniquely mixes the adventure and fun of touring Israel with the inspiration and meaning of learning about Judaism. Participants spend their mornings in the Old City engaged in a wide variety of inspiring discussions and sessions on topics including Jewish Philosophy, Israel Advocacy, Science and Religion, Dating and Romance, Leadership Building, and more. Afternoons are spent touring the country, volunteering, and enjoying amazing activities such as kayaking, ATV-ing, and rappelling. Most evenings are free, giving participants the opportunity to relax, visit friends or family, experience the Israeli nightlife, or continue the day’s discussions with their peers and staff. Most appealing about this extraordinary trip is the low price tag of $499 all-included. Jerusalem Fellowships has been described as “life-changing” by many of its tens of thousands of past participants from around the world.
