From June 24–28, 2018, we hosted our 18th Anniversary Mission to Israel and were joined by over 80 supporters who got to see, feel and experience the once-in-a-lifetime educational journey of Birthright Israel. The Mission kicked off with a Havdalah ceremony on the balcony of the Hilton Hotel in Tel Aviv overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The following days were filled with excursions to various sites in the country including The Island of Peace, Independence Hall, Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, and much more.

Mission attendees even got to experience a Birthright Israel Mega Event at Sultan’s Pool in Jerusalem with over 6,000 trip participants, Mifgash, and community leaders. The Mission concluded with special guest speaker, Avi Issacharoff, Co-Creator of the hit Netflix show Fauda. Participants then traveled to the beautiful Beit Andromeda in Jaffa for lunch and an intimate conversation with Birthright Israel Co-Founder, Charles Bronfman, and Founding CEO Shimshon Shoshani.
