Birthright Israel was born of a bold vision to make an educational trip to Israel an integral part of the life of every young Jew, in an effort to generate a profound transformation in contemporary Jewish culture and a connection between Israelis and their peers in the Diaspora.
Over 500,000 participants from across the globe have visited Israel on a 10-day educational trip with their peers through Birthright Israel. Most participants say that the trip was a “life-changing experience” that made them feel closer to Israel and to their Jewish heritage.
THE EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY
One of the primary objectives of our trips is to motivate participants to explore their Jewish identity through a peer educational experience of historic and contemporary Israel
The ten days of a Birthright Israel trip are a journey in both Jewish history and in a contemporary Jewish state, accompanied by Israeli peers (“the Mifgash”) who join the trips as colleagues and friends. The Birthright Israel educational journey is committed to a culture of open discussion and dialogue about all issues: identity, politics, religion and Jewish living.
