What Is Taglit-Birthright Israel?
Taglit-Birthright Israel is the most significant Jewish philanthropic endeavor of its kind. The co-founders of the project, philanthropists Charles R. Bronfman and Michael Steinhardt, have created a unique and unprecedented partnership between the Government of Israel, Jewish federations/communities around the world and private philanthropists. These partners believe that it is every Jew's right to be offered a free first-time visit to Israel as a gift from the Jewish people.
Taglit-Birthright Israel is an innovative partnership between the people of Israel through the Government of Israel, private philanthropists through the Birthright Israel Foundation and Jewish communities around the world (North American Jewish Federations through the United Jewish Communities (UJC); the Jewish Agency for Israel; and Keren Hayesod).
Since the launch of the Taglit-Birthright Israel initiative in 1999, close to 300,000 Jewish young adults have benefited from this incomparable opportunity through the tremendous generosity of the program's partners.
All of IsraelExperts Taglit - Birthright Israel programs are free, 10-days, co-ed and appropriate for all Jewish backgrounds.
