Your Federation funds Birthright Israel trips for the Atlanta area’s Jewish young adults ages 22 to 26 and serves as a resource for Atlantans 18-26 participating on national Birthright Israel trips as well. Birthright Israel provides a 10-day educational trip in a peer group setting that encourages young adults to explore Israel, see it, experience it, talk about it, and think about what Israel means for them and the Jewish people. Annually, Atlanta participates in three trips with approximately 40 participants on each trip.
The trip focuses on three main areas: the Narratives of the Jewish People, Contemporary Israel, and the Formative Values of Judaism. Educational programs include touring, hiking, discussions, social events, camel and jeep rides, and much more.
Birthright Israel trips are conducted by trip organizers who are accredited by Israel Outdoors, the official provider.
