What is Birthright Israel?
Birthright Israel offers the gift of a free, educational 10-day peer group trip to Israel for young Jewish adults age 18-32. The trip allows participants to make new friends, make connections to Israel, its people, and the Jewish community. A bus group is formed of 40 participants from Canada, 8 Israeli peers, 2 staff members, and a Tour Educator. Canada Israel Experience (CIE), is Canada's very experienced trip organizer for educational tours to Israel. CIE is dedicated to maintaining the highest educational, logistical, safety and security standards on its 10-day Taglit-Birthright Israel program. Visit CIE for more information.
