Hillel Rio de Janeirowww.hillelrio.org.br
Hands On Alternative Break in Rio is an opportunity to explore global Jewish peoplehood while participating in Hillel Rio’s Tzedek projects that help fulfill needs in communities in Rio de Janeiro. Past participants have volunteered in one of Rio’s favelas (shanty town). Students also interact with the local community and connect with young members from Hillel Rio de Janeiro through cultural and leisure activities. This is a unique opportunity to see a beautiful city through the eyes of your Hillel family host, Hillel Rio.
Participating Hillels are expected to send one to two Hillel professionals, depending on the size of the group. These Hillel professionals are also responsable for leading discussions and reflection (curriculum provided by SIC).
