It's All in

Since the inception of Birthright Israel, Brandeis University has conducted research through the Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies with participants upon the return of their trip. The studies are to measure the long-term effects of Birthright Israel and the participants’ choices as they relate to Jewish life. The majority of these statistics are reflective of the 2017 Brandeis study. See the true impact Birthright Israel has in this short video »
