Israel Groups & Campus Programs

USC Hillel works with all jewish and non jewish student groups who show interest in learning more about Israel. It is very important for us at Hillel that israel will not be seen in the narrow narrative of the conflict in the middle east, but have our students exposed to the culture, music, innovative environment that Israel has to offer.
