Travel : Alternative Break Trips

The Bronfman Center pioneered the first American Jewish World Service Alternative Break trip in 2000. Since then, students have traveled to El Salvador, the Mississippi Delta, Mexico, California, New York City and many other destinations to help communities in need and develop relationships with each other outside of school. Students provide direct service to communities in need - house building, pipe-laying, planting and more while living and studying the connection between social justice, service and Judaism. Students return from the trips with knowledge and energy and continue to advocate for social justice on campus.
