Birthright Israel

Taglit-Birthright Israel provides the gift of first time, peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26 in order to strengthen participants' personal Jewish identity and connection to the Jewish people. Trinity College Hillel has sponsored many campus Birthright trips to Israel in recent years. These trips are usually in conjunction with other campuses, providing opportunities to build relationships with students and peers from nearby schools.
During recent winter breaks, Wesleyan and Trinity students have spent 10 days together with Israel Experts, a trip provider that strives to go above and beyond the average Taglit-Birthright Israel itinerary to create a program that exposes participants to a unique vision of Israel – a vibrant, modern, conflicted and developing Jewish State – while at the same time keeping to a formula of fun and excitement.

For more than 13 years, IsraelExperts has been running and organizing Taglit-Birthright Israel trips and was recently recognized by Taglit-Birthright Israel for consistently providing participants with overall excellence in programming. All of IsraelExperts Taglit - Birthright Israel programs are free, 10-days, co-ed and appropriate for all Jewish backgrounds. If you are a Jewish young adult 18 -26, don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
Registration starts on September 9, 2014.
