Taglit-Birthright Israel

Taglit-Birthright Israel is an innovative partnership between the people of Israel, the Government of Israel, private philanthropists and Jewish communities world-wide. Our mission is to provide every eligible young Jewish adult (18 to 26) with the GIFT of a 10 day educational trip to Israel, strengthening his or her Jewish identity, and connection with the local Jewish community and Israel.
Since its inception in 2000, over 600,000 participants from 68 countries, including over 5500 from Australia, have experienced the gift of Birthright, which has become the largest and most successful educational program in the world.
