Annually, Jconnect partners with JDC Entwine to take 15 Jconnectors on transformative global travel experience in order to explore, find meaning, and take action. Entwine is an initiative of the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the largest Jewish humanitarian organization in the world. The trips are highly subsidized thanks to a generous grant from Stan and Michele Rosen. For information about our next trip, contact Jconnectdirector@hilleluw.org
Jconnect is excited to offer FREE trips to Israel. Birthright trips to Israel connect Jewish students to their Jewish journey and identities, to Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, and, upon return, to their Jewish communities. Students are led by Jewish professionals and will experience Jewish history and Israeli culture through unforgettable tours, hikes, and unique activities.
Jconnect supports trips for 22-26 year-olds from the Pacific Northwest and especially the Seattle area specifically. Graduates from the Class of 2023 are welcome to join.
