Last week, National Board Member Roberta Menzin and her husband, Joe, hosted an evening of support for Birthright Israel. Their home was filled with the energy and passion of the Birthright Israel’s Miami community. It was a truly inspiring evening that reminded us all of the importance of connecting young Jewish adults to Israel.

Celebrating Jewish Identity and Connection

Professor Barry Shrage shared his insights on the profound impact Birthright Israel has on shaping young people’s Jewish identity and their connection to Israel. We were also fortunate to hear from Birthright Israel alums, Jared Firestone and Miranda May, who shared their personal stories and how their experiences shaped their lives.

Jared, a 2024 Olympic hopeful on Israel’s National Skeleton Team, is a testament to the program’s ability to empower young individuals. You can watch Jared in action below.

Miranda, Vice President of SpoiledChild, exemplifies the diverse paths Birthright Israel alums can forge. Their stories are powerful reminders of the lasting impact this program has.
