JFNA Birthright Trip Summer 2019

Young leadership adventure for 27-32 year olds

Thought you missed the boat on Birthright? Think again. 

On this trip, you'll have the opportunity to explore Israel's natural beauty, its authentic foodie experiences, its epic 3,000-year history, and its colorful cultural traditions. As an active travel experience, you'll be spending less time on the bus and more time on the go—discovering the past, present, and future of Israel with all your senses. Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

Through the course of this journey, you’ll form new cross-cultural friendships with Israeli and North American peers, experience all the must-see/must-do highlights of Israel, take part in hands-on service opportunities, and return home with a new sense of perspective and meaning. You will also get to know Israeli society on a person-to-person level with VIP community visits to special programming in Israel thanks to the Jewish Federations of North America!
