This past spring break, 11 UCSB and SBCC students led by Hillel staff member, Alexi Biener, traveled to El Salvador to take part in a week long service-learning trip organized and implemented by American Jewish World Service (AJWS). Met by two AJWS staff people in El Salvador, the group worked, lived, ate, and learned together – connecting Judaism and social justice.
Graduate student, Danny Sheinson has written an article that has not only been published in the UCSB Daily Nexus, but in the Santa Barbara Independent as well! Check out this link for the full article and to read for yourself the impact this trip had on every single participant! http://www.independent.com/news/2012/jul/02/alternative-spring-break/
