Alternative Break Trips

Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, all University-sponsored international travel over spring break were cancelled, including Penn State Hillel’s trip to Roatán, Honduras. This has disappointed our students and staff, but we recognize the difficult decision from Penn State leadership for the safety of our Penn State family.

We are so appreciative of the generosity from our community, and will keep you in the loop on other service opportunities for the students of Penn State Hillel.

Again, we thank you for your support of our students and their efforts to repair the world. If you have any questions regarding your contribution, please reach out to Stefanie Tapper, Director of Development, at


Penn State Hillel is dedicated to the Jewish values of Tzedek and Tikkun Olam (Justice and Repairing the World). Our staff takes students on several service-based trips throughout the year, both nationally and around the world. Past trips include Oklahoma, Israel, Texas, and Honduras.
