Federation's Live 2012 Birthright Blog!

Rabbi Janice Elster, 2030 Project Leader, is in Israel leading the Summer 2012 Birthright Trip! Throughout the 10 days, participants will be live blogging about their experiences, adventures and revelations in Israel.  Your Federation dollars help fund these important, life changing trips, ensuring the next generation develops a meaningful, lasting connection to the Jewish state.

Taglit-Birthright Israel, supported by Federations across the nation, offers the gift of a free, 10-day educational trip to Israel for Jewish adults between the ages of 18 to 26. Since its inception in 2000, Taglit-Birthright Israel has sent more than 300,000 Jewish young adults to Israel. They come from 54 countries, all 50 U.S. states and Canadian provinces, and from nearly 1,000 North American colleges and universities.

The trip aims to strengthen participants’ Jewish identity; to build an understanding, friendship and lasting bond with the land and people of Israel; and to reinforce the solidarity of the Jewish people worldwide.
