Ten days in Israel is an incredible experience, but what happens when you get back? There are plenty of ways to continue living out the best parts of your Birthright Israel trip right here in the States.
Start at home.
Remember celebrating Shabbat in Israel with all of your tripmates? Our NEXT Shabbat program will help you bring that experience to your friends here at home. It’s easy: Invite at least four friends over for a Friday night dinner or Saturday lunch, and we’ll provide resources and some funds to cover the cost of groceries or take-out.
Keep your eye on our programs.
We offer programs to all Birthright Israel alumni, regardless of when you returned from your trip or where you live.
This month, we invite you to check out our Natan/NEXT Grants for Social Entrepreneurs. With a Natan/NEXT Grant, you can get up to $10,000 to start a new grassroots project to make Jewish life better, more interesting, and more fun for you and your friends. Applications are officially open, so learn more and apply today.
Many of our programs are based around Jewish holidays, when we'll help you host your own celebrations for your friends—like Passover seders and Rosh Hashanah dinners—and give you everything you need to make it happen. Passover is coming up soon, so stay tuned.
We regularly announce our programs here on our website, but to get first dibs, join us on Facebook, where you’ll hear it before everyone else.
