Taglit-Birthright Israel expands eligibility, accepts formal high school trips to Israel

The Taglit-Birthright Israel program has expanded eligibility for its free 10-day trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18-26, JNS.org has learned. Teenagers who went on an educational trip to Israel during high school were previously not eligible for Birthright trips, but can now participate, confirmed Noa Bauer, Birthright’s vice president of international marketing.

ruthschapira's insight:

Birthright, which previously excluded some of the most Jewishly committed young adults, who may have spent summers and semesters in Israel, is thankfully waking up to the reality that these experiences should be reinforced through programming and not seen as a barrier to entry.
