Israel birthright registration to begin

Jewish young adults hoping to explore their heritage can begin registering at noon today for a free 10-day trip to Israel this summer.

The Taglit-Birthright Israel trip, offered in winter and summer, gives Jews ages 18 to 26 the opportunity to strengthen their Jewish identity and form a deeper connection to their religion. Registration is open until the trip reaches capacity. The trip is funded by the Israeli government, Birthright trip alumni, private philanthropists and other Jewish organizations, said Dana Ben-Chail, an Israel fellow at the UF Hillel.

Ben-Chail staffed Hillel’s winter break trip to Israel and is coordinating the summer trip.

“It is an amazing opportunity for people to experience Israel in a very unique way with people who are all experiencing Israel together for the first time,” she said.

A refundable $250 deposit is required for registration. Birthright provides airfare from New York to Israel, accommodations and two meals a day.
