For the first time since its founding, a limited number of Birthright Israel trip options for 27 to 32-year-olds will be introduced this summer in addition to the standard programming available for 18 to 26-year-olds.
According to Birthright, the maximum eligible age reflects changing societal trends with young adults making life decisions – such as getting married and having children – later in life. Building off of Birthright Israel’s most successful year in history with nearly 48,000 participants, this change will enable more Jewish young adults to develop connections with their heritage, the larger diaspora community and the State of Israel.
Summer registration will officially open on January 30th with an early bird option for pre-registered applicants on January 29th, 10am EST. Additional information is available at: birthrightisrael.com.
