“When donors like myself support Birthright Israel, we are making a crucial decision to keep the existence of the Jewish community alive and vibrant. This trip is our chance to engage young people at the beginning of adulthood when they face negativity about Israel and are unaware of the facts. The gift of Birthright Israel provides our younger generations the tools to build a body of knowledge about Israel, Judaism and our collective heritage.”
