We’ve Come of Age

 Birthright Israel Celebrates its Bar/Bat Mitzvah Year

 When the first Birthright Israel flight landed on January 4, 2000, it was all just an experiment. No one knew whether the initiative would succeed or what its impact would be.  Thirteen years later, Birthright Israel has become the most popular program in the Jewish community and the quintessential rite of passage for young Jewish adults around the world.

 We’re proud to celebrate our coming-of-age milestone, and continuing our work to ensure the life-changing gift of Birthright Israel is available for generations to come.
