Taglit-Birthright Israel

A Culturally Immersive Israeli Experience

Taglit-Birthright Israel

It started as a bold idea: Bring young Jews to Israel, free of charge, for a life-changing, immersive look at our shared homeland. Today Taglit-Birthright Israel—a partner of The Jewish Agency for Israel—is the largest educational-tourism program in the world.

They come from the United States, the former Soviet Union, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, and more—Jewish young people, ages 18-32, travel to Israel to connect more deeply with their Jewish heritage in the place where it all began.

Since 2009, Taglit-Birthright has made it all possible for more than 650,000 young Jews. This revolutionary program is a gift to the Jewish leaders of tomorrow—fostering connections between Jewish communities, building lifelong friendships, and confirming our shared heritage in a tangible way.

For many young French Jews, the opportunity to experience Taglit-Birthright Israel was an eye-opening experience—it marked the first time they were able to express their Judaism freely and openly.
