What Do Birthright Israel Alumni Have to Say?

From the first steps on Jerusalem stone to where I am today, my whole life path was changed because of Birthright Israel, and for that, I am forever grateful.”

Tori Green, 2014 Birthright Israel Alumna

Not only did this free trip to Israel connect me to the Jewish community, but it opened my eyes for the first time to earnestly learn about Jewish beliefs, culture, and traditions. What I once assumed was an antiquated religion, I now see for its long history of perseverance, progression, and universal wisdom."

Connor Jacobson, 2020 Birthright Israel Alumnus

As a special needs mom, it is hard to convey to others how special it is that Jonah has been able to do so many of the things that his peers are doing. When I met him at the airport after he landed at JFK and I saw the expression on his face as he embraced the Birthright Israel participants one by one, it was clear just how happy (and proud of himself) he was."

Stacey Geer, Birthright Israel Parent

I was born in Belarus into a family that had to hide their origins and Judaism for countless decades. I became very curious and started reading and doing research. I needed to understand where I came from. Unfortunately, I had no Jewish community around me. I didn’t have anyone to speak to…until I found Birthright Israel.”

Aliaksandra Sukharuchkin, 2010 Birthright Israel Alumna

The true impact of the work Birthright Israel Foundation is doing will not be understood for some time, but the immediate impact is clear. More people have connected with Israel and hundreds of thousands of Jewish people who have little connection with the Jewish community now do. My story is echoed by many that joined Birthright Israel with me."

Guido Weiss, 2008 Birthright Israel Alumnus

Going on Birthright Israel opened my eyes to a deeper meaning of what it is to be Jewish. It made me confident enough to come to a college where the Jewish population is practically non-existent and know that I can stand my ground for the Jewish people and the State of Israel."

Tori Shiver, 2018 Birthright Israel Alumna

It was important to me, not only to learn the history of Israel and its culture but also to gain an authentic outlook of what it means to be Israeli. Without these intimate one-on-one conversations with the soldiers, I would not have had the chance to see things from their perspective.”

Alexis Vance, 2019 Birthright Israel Alumna
