Ryerson Hillel is extremely excited to welcome Or Weiss to our team as our Israel Fellow.  In her role, Or helps students connect with Israel by sharing her story, building relationships and bringing the best that Israel has to offer to campus. Or will be helping students “Experience Israel” and focus on showcasing the many different faces of Israel (arts, culture, politics & innovation) to our students and the greater Ryerson community. She will be hanging out in the Loft and is always happy to grab a cup of coffee and chat about the latest happenings in Israel in Hebrew or English.  Don’t be a stranger and come say hi!

Ryerson Hillel also continues to adopt the Israel Engaged Campus (IEC) initiative towards Israel programming.  Through this initiative, students engage their peers in conversations and programming that highlights the role and value that Israel plays in their academic field of study. Our initiatives have focused on areas such as: social work, psychology, engineering, media production, youth & child care, hospitality and tourism, finance and graphic print management.  In each case, Hillel Ryerson students spent time building relationships with their peers, creating initiatives highlighting Israel to the rest of the campus community.  As part of the IEC initiative, Hillel Ryerson students have the opportunity to gain international work experience by interning in Israel over the course of the summer.  To get involved with this initiative or to find our more information, please contact Or Weiss at

We offer many programs for students to travel to Israel throughout the year! Check out all of the opportunities below and contact us to explore your options, as well as scholarship and/or subsidies available.
