Birthright Celebrates 10 Years with Big Event
Approximately 3,000 young Jews from 10 countries will travel throughout Israel to participate in events featuring music and bike rides.
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.
