On Sunday, September 18, 2022, supporters of Birthright Israel Foundation gathered at Belmont Country Club in Boston, MA, to celebrate the program’s educational impact. Sara and Leonard Aronson graciously hosted the evening. Guests had the pleasure of hearing from alumna Lauren Gruber who shared how her trip gave her the confidence to stand up against antisemitism on her college campus. Those in attendance were also fortunate to hear from Barry Shrage, whose passion for Birthright Israel was palpable.


We hope that the evening touched the hearts of our guests with a clear case for why Birthright Israel is imperative now more than ever before. With your help, we are truly making a difference in the lives of young Jewish adults, securing a strong future, and ensuring a lasting relationship with Israel. To date, we have sent more than 35,000 young Jews from Greater Boston on this life-changing trip to Israel.

While the event may have concluded, our commitment to sending every eligible young adult to Israel continues. If you have already made a gift, thank you. If you wish to increase your gift or if you have not yet made a gift to Birthright Israel Foundation, we strongly encourage you to support the 2022 annual campaign.

We look forward to making an unprecedented impact on young Jewish adults through the Birthright Israel program.
