If you are between the ages of 18 and 26, and have never been to Israel, you can apply to go to on a free 10 day trip with Birthright. Birthright registration for winter trips opens September 12th for new applicants.
I participated in Birthright in June 2010, and had one of the best times of my life. Hiking in the Golan Heights, laying on a beach in Tel Aviv, visiting a kibbutz on the Lebanon border, and celebrating Shabbat at the Western Wall are just a few of the lasting memories I made during my ten days, not to mention the thirty new friends. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!
If you’re interested in going, the Jewish Federation organizes a DC community trip for people between the ages of 22 and 26. Find out more about their trip here.
