Birthright Celebrates 10 Years with Big Event

Taglit-Birthright Israel will celebrate its 10 year anniversary with a three-day event next week. Approximately 3,000 young Jews from 10 countries will travel to different cities in Israel.

The youth will meet with past Birthright staff, political leaders and high-tech moguls at each stop. The event, called El Israel, is meant to expose the different faces of Israeli society and culture to Diaspora youth.

Event highlights include a 700-person bike ride with tech employees in Tel Aviv, a Jewish music event in Safed, an army hike with soldiers, a visit to residents and students of Sderot and a visit to a Beersheba recycling centre.

The event – taking place next Monday through Wednesday – will end in in Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day.
