A partnership between Jewish Life at Duke and the Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture, Roots to Rights is an experiential education program exploring the South's major historic Civil Rights sites.
The program explores the shared beliefs that brought these seemingly disparate communities together during this pivotal period in American history.
Each spring, Jewish Life at Duke hosts its very own Birthright Israel trip for current Duke University students. Birthright Israel is an international program that offers young Jews ages 18 to 32 the opportunity to visit Israel free of charge on a 10-day peer group trip. Led by JLD staff members, students travel throughout the country, exploring sites of historical, cultural, and religious significance. Jewish Life at Duke is happy to work with graduate students who wish to travel on a Birthright Israel trip with those closer to their own age.
