About Taglit: Birthright Israel

Birthright Israel began with a bold idea...

Birthright Israel began with a bold idea offering a free, life-changing trip to Israel to young Jewish adults between the ages of 18 through 26.

Our mission is to give every Jewish young adult around the world, especially the unaffiliated, the opportunity to visit Israel. Today, Birthright Israel is the largest educational tourism organization in the world. 

Founded in 1999 by a remarkable group of committed Jewish philanthropists led by Charles Bronfman and Michael Steinhardt, Birthright Israel aims to strengthen Jewish identity, Jewish communities, and connection with Israel and its people. 

The gift of a Birthright Israel trip is made possible thanks to the generous support of many sources, including the State of Israel, the program’s founders and other philanthropists, the Jewish Federation system and Keren Hayesod, the Jewish Agency for Israel, parents of trip participants, alumni of the program, and thousands of individuals donors from around the world who believe in our mission. 

In North America, Birthright Israel Foundation raises the necessary fund's thanks to 30,000+ donors each year, to ensure that Birthright Israel remains a gift to young Jewish adults for years to come.
