Why are these trips free?
Birthright Israel is a unique partnership between the people of Israel through their government, local Jewish communities and Federations (through the United Jewish Communities, Keren Hayesod and The Jewish Agency for Israel), and leading Jewish philanthropists. The goal of these exciting tours is to inspire in our participants a stronger connection to the Jewish people, Jewish life and to the Jewish State of Israel while having a great time!
