Like many of you, we are following the news in Israel with deep concern. This is a difficult moment, and we are hoping for a more peaceful future.
Following the October 7th attacks, all remaining 2023 trips were canceled. Although Israel remains engaged in an ongoing border conflict – the rhythm of everyday life has returned to the streets of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and beyond. Children go to school, adults go to work, restaurants are open, and the smells of open-air markets are back.
While the gravity of October 7th lingers, after considerable deliberation, our classic 10-day Birthright Israel trips have already safely resumed.
If you are registered for the Winter 2023-24 season, you may join an available trip through March 2024. For everyone else, full registration for Summer 2024 trips will open in January, and you can complete a commitment-free application now to get started.
