On Wednesday, February 26, 2020, Birthright Israel Foundation celebrated 20 years of impact in South Palm Beach County with a private event at the home of Andrea and Mike Leven. The evening’s guests had the pleasure of hearing from local alums Bryan Drowos, Courtney Simmons Demri, Nicole Livadas, and Kyla Gladstone, who represent the voices of Birthright Israel’s 800,000+ participants:

“In Israel, I gained an intimate understanding of the Jewish people, my brothers and sisters today, and my ancestors of the past. After walking the halls of Yad Vashem, talking to the locals, and learning from the Israelis on my trip, I was astounded by the bravery and perseverance of the Jewish nation.”– Kyla Gladstone

Each one of their stories is unique and showcases the profound effects of the Birthright Israel program throughout its 20-year history. We hope that those in attendance left the event feeling inspired by this life-changing gift and can see firsthand the impact it has had on their local Jewish communities. We know that without your support, stories like theirs would not be possible. Please consider making a gift to Birthright Israel Foundation today.
