ABOUT THE PROGRAM
provides the gift of first time, peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26. Taglit-birthright israel's
founders created this program to send thousands of young Jewish adults from all over the world to Israel as a gift in order to diminish the growing division between Israel and Jewish communities around the world; to strengthen the sense of solidarity among world Jewry; and to strengthen participants' personal Jewish identity and connection to the Jewish people. Taglit-birthright israel
operates on a belief that it is every Jewish person's birthright to visit Israel. To date, over 147,000 young adults from 52 countries have traveled to Israel on Taglit-Birthright Israel
