Birthright Israel

Are you or a relative between the ages of 18-26?                       

If you are Jewish, age 18-26 and have never been on a peer-group trip to Israel, we offer the best way to have the time of your life in Israel.

Birthright Israel provides the gift of first time, peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults 18-26.  Taglit-Birthright Israel’s founders created this program to send thousands of young Jewish adults from all over the world to Israel as a gift in order to enhance the experience between Israel and Jewish communities around the world.

The officers/board and office staff of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Bedford would like to wish all of our members and their families:

 “L’shanah Tovah Tikatevu!”      A Happy and Healthy New Year.
