Birthright Israel brings 13,500 participants to Israel 

As antisemitism reaches historic levels across the world, Birthright Israel participants will strengthen their Jewish identity and build relationships with the land and people of Israel when they need it most – returning home with a renewed sense of pride and determination, ready to stand up for their beliefs on campus and in their communities. 

More than 13,500 Birthright participants are filling streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, immersed in Israeli culture – seeing the real Israel for themselves. This summer, Birthright is the largest educational tourism provider to Israel. An additional 2,100 Israeli young adults will participate on a Birthright trip, strengthening the bonds between Israel and the diaspora and sending a message of love and support during this time of war. 

This is part of a series spotlighting local and overseas partner agencies that are beneficiaries of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s annual Community Campaign.
