A unique opportunity to visit Israel for 19-32 year-olds*
CLAIM YOUR BIRTHRIGHT
On Birthright Israel, you will have the opportunity to experience modern Israel, connect to your Judaism (whatever that means to you) and meet lots of new people.
Travelling across the country for 10 days, you will have the chance to immerse yourself in the culture, history and politics of our dynamic homeland, and get to know young Israelis from a cross-section of society including Druze, Bedouin, Arabs and Jews.
Some of the highlights of your FREE educational tour include:
• 2000 years of Jewish history at the Western Wall and Masada
• Sleeping under the stars in a Bedouin tent
• Visiting the mineral-rich Dead Sea
• Option to stay on in Israel after the programme*
Under the new criteria, a 19-32 year-olds will be eligible to apply for Birthright Israel as long as they have not been on an organised trip to Israel since the age of 18, and have not been on an organised trip lasting 3 months or more since the age of 12. Participants continue to need to have at least one Jewish parent who is not actively practising another religion to be eligible for Taglit-Birthright Israel.
