More than 20 University of South Florida students participated in a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip organized by USF Hillel, from May 24 to June 4.

Among the many highlights of the trip, students visited an Israeli Army base to spend time with soldiers, went to the desert in Tiberias, rafted on the Jordan River, swam in the Dead Sea and spent the Shavuot holiday in Jerusalem.

Taglit-Birthright Israel provides free educational, first-time trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26. For more information on Birthright Israel and to register for future trips, go to www.birthrightisrael.com.
