Vision Statement
Through peer leadership and education in an open and pluralistic environment, Young Judaea promotes mutual respect and understanding between diverse groups of Jews with an emphasis on the centrality of Israel to all Jewish life.
Believing that Israel is central to all Jewish life, our primary goal is to emphasize Jewish and Zionist education, building lasting connections with Israel.  Through educational activities, meeting with Israelis, and spending time in, Young Judaeans have a unique opportunity to form an intimate and lifelong relationship with Israel. Young Judaea is constantly engaged with the question: What does Zionism mean today?
Our Company/Organization
For over 100 years, Young Judaea has brought together thousands of Jewish youth from across the country and around the globe  – representing every religious, cultural and political persuasion – through a shared commitment to Jewish values, Jewish pride and a love of Israel.
What makes us special? We stand apart through our focus on education, leadership and social action; our pluralistic approach that promotes mutual respect and understanding between diverse groups of Jews; and our emphasis on the centrality of Israel to all Jewish life.
More than that, we are a family, an ever-growing community of past and present Young Judaeans who work together as Jewish leaders to make a difference at home and around the world…whether they are age 7 or 35! 
The Trip Staff Team
The staff on every Young Judaea Birthright trip is one of the most important components of a successful trip.  The staff includes a tour guide with a vast amount of experience and two North American staff members, who travel with the group and who bring their own enthusiasm and experience.
Rounding out the staff is our Medic/Security guard, who served in the IDF and has undergone intense training to ensure the safety of our participants.
