Applications Open for Birthright
Birthright Israel is a free trip to Israel for Jewish young adults age 18-26. The program now accepts individuals who have previously participated in teen trips to Israel before age 18. Contact Birthright directly or through your college campus for more details on eligibility. New opportunities for participants this year include:
- The Birthright Israel Academic program, an extended 13-day trip offering up to three college credits through Tel Aviv University. Participants will have the option to select from two highly dynamic courses in business, entrepreneurship and international relations.
- Birthright Israel Focus, a new pilot program offering participants a 7-8 day trip during spring break that will have two tracks. One will focus on the geopolitical reality of Israel and will allow participants to speak with experts on politics, diplomacy, human rights, Israeli-US relations and the changing realities of the Arab World. The second track will focus on life in contemporary Israel.
