An Open Invitation – to Israel! (July 2014)

birthright-columnHey, YOUNG PEOPLE! Who wants to go with us to Israel for FREE this summer?

We’re leading another Taglit-Birthright Israel trip this summer – our fifth ALEPH trip! We’re connected with a new Israeli provider now, Shorashim, we’ve gotten our trip dates assigned: July 20-30, 2014 — and we are taking registrations.

We are VERY excited about all the awesome young people already registered for our trip — healers, yoga teachers, engineers and technicians, Jewish educators, musicians and singers, farmers, and a trapeze artist – and of course LOTS of students!

Our registrants span the U.S. and Canada and also span the denominational spectrum – from traditionally observant to secular and lots of varieties in between! We are very proud of the diversity and depth of our group.

AND we are excited because there is still an opportunity to join this AMAZING group of people and come with us to Israel this summer! Registration is still open for a few more days and we have a few slots that are still open – why not YOU? We are still accepting applications from anyone who meets Taglit-Birthright Israel eligibility requirements described here.

THIS MEANS that our trip is now also open to 18-20 year olds who would be a good fit for our trip, alongside the 21-26 year olds we started recruiting earlier this year.

Interested? Email us IMMEDIATELY at and we’ll answer any questions and help you get registered. DON’T DELAY – Registration will close very soon and we’d love to take you with us!

And, spread the word around to all the cool young people you know…
