Birthright Israel is excited to announce their first group arrived in Israel on May 24, 2021, after a long postponement due to COVID-19. Young Jewish adults from New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Florida, Texas, and several other states were the first to partake in this life-changing journey. They were also joined by two Birthright Israel staff members known as Madrichim.

This group received a special welcome from the Birthright Israel staff, including CEO Gidi Mark. The young Jewish adults also got Birthright Israel t-shirts and backpacks. Together, they sang Shalom Aleichem as they began their first few moments in Israel. To learn more about what the group will experience, you can check out our Sample Itinerary.

Lastly, we want to give a warm thank you to our generous donors. This group of young Jewish adults are embarking on a life-changing journey thanks to their support. We know they will leave Israel filled with pride in their Jewish identity and an everlasting connection to the land and people of Israel.
