Continuing Esther’s Story of Bravery

The theme of Purim has never been more relevant to the Jewish people than today. In a post-October 7th world, we must think of Esther’s bravery and how she risked her life to save the Jewish people. She demonstrated courage, resilience, and bravery. And right now, when young Jewish adults are bombarded with antisemitism and anti-Israel hatred, instead of running from their Jewishness, they are embracing it.

Every time a young Jewish adult applies for a Birthright Israel trip, they show courage and resilience. And this May, when thousands of young Jewish adults board planes to begin their Birthright Israel journey, they will continue the story of Esther’s bravery and showcase the enduring spirit of the Jewish people.

We hope you’ll continue to help us uplift the next generation by giving them the gift of a once-in-a-lifetime Birthright Israel trip. In honor of the Purim story, we hope you’ll donate to help a young Jewish adult take part in the story of Jewish resilience.
