Since 1994, over 200,000 Jews from 52 countries have taken their first trip to Israel with the free, ten-day Taglit-Birthright Israel program. If you are 18-26 and have not yet taken advantage of this amazing opportunity, the registration floodgates open this Wednesday at 12:00 noon EST (pre-registration is Tuesday for individuals who have applied for past trips).
Don’t miss out. How often in life do you get a free trip somewhere with airfare, hotel, food, good looking Israelis to hook up with. . . .?
There is no catch. If you meet the eligibility requirements (18-26, some Jewish blood, never been on an organized Israel trip), you can sign up. Of course the sooner you sign up the better since many of the trips fill up immediately. Picking which trip you want to travel on may take a bit of time – there are about twenty different Birthright Israel trip organizers, and many of the organizers have a variety of trip options.
