Birthright Israel Expands Eligibility, Opens 2014 Registration

birthrightTaglit-Birthright Israel has just announced that they are no longer disqualifying those who participated in an Israel experience program prior to the age of 18. This means you can now go with friends who have been on an organized trip to Israel when they were 0-17 years old through their school, camp, or youth summer program.  As always, you must be between 18 and 26 years of age to qualify for the free ten-day trip to Israel.

There are many options for trips this summer, and Birthright has just opened registration for North America.  JEWISHColorado has organized a Colorado bus; more information about this option is available from YAD Senior Manager Marisa Ellman at 303-316-6494 or mellman@jewishcolorado.org

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
