Taglit-Birthright Israel aims to change the course of Jewish history and ensure the continuity of the Jewish people by strengthening Jewish identity, Jewish communities, and solidarity with Israel via an educational trip to Israel for Jewish young adults around the world.
51,000 participants annually
At this rate, within a decade, one in every two Jewish young adults worldwide would participate in a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip. By 2015, we seek to achieve our mission of becoming the leading organization transforming the Israel experience into an integral part of the lives of young Jews worldwide.
A Bond Between Israel and Jewish Communities Worldwide
We aim to foster participants’ understanding and identification with Israel, and through the “mifgash” program, strengthen the solidarity of Israeli young adults with their Jewish peers abroad and develop the Jewish identity of individuals in both groups.
A Lasting Impact on Jewish Life
Our hope is that our trips motivate young people to continue to explore their Jewish identity, support for Israel, and to maintain long-lasting connections with Israelis after their trip has ended. We encourage our alumni to take active roles in Jewish organizations and to participate in follow-up activities worldwide.
