birthright israel is a unique partnership between the people of Israel through their government, local Jewish communities (through the United Jewish Communities, Keren Hayesod and The Jewish Agency for Israel), and leading Jewish philanthropists. birthright israel provides a gift of first time, peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26.
birthright israel's founders created this initial five year project to send 100,000 young adults Jews from all over the world to Israel as a gift in order to diminish the growing division between Israel and Jewish communities around the world; to strengthen the sense of solidarity between Israeli youth and Jewish communities around the world; to increase the number of return visits to Israel; and to promote the role of Israel as a powerful resource in Jewish learning.
birthright israel believes that it is every Jewish person's birthright to visit Israel. A unique partnership has been developed to provide the gift of the trip to all eligible participants. To date, over 28,000 young adults have traveled to Israel for the first time on birthright israel trips.
