Taglit-Birthright Israel is a partnership between the Government of Israel, Jewish communities around the world (through the Jewish Federations of North America, the Jewish Agency for Israel and Keren Hayesod) and more than 30,000 individual supporters in North America and around the world.
It began with a simple idea – to offer Jewish, young adults a life-changing trip to Israel and in doing so, transform the future of Judaism.
Since its inception in 2000, Taglit-Birthright Israel has sent more than 500,000 Jewish young adults to Israel. They come from 66 countries, all 50 U.S. states and Canadian provinces, and from nearly 1,000 North American colleges and universities.
They aim to give every Jewish young adult around the world, especially the unaffiliated, the opportunity to visit Israel on an educational trip.
