Taglit – Birthright Israel
This is a ten-day tour for Jewish young people aged 18–26 who have never been to Israel. The participants of the project visit places associated with the history of the Jewish nation and famous Israeli sights as well as meet their peers among new repatriates and students. The participants are accompanied by supervisors and excursion guides. The “Taglit” project aims to introduce young Jews living in expat communities to Jewish history, Jewish heritage and life in present-day Israel. The trip across the country within the “Taglit” programme is planned so that the visitors see and learn as much as possible, see the whole country from north to south, including Dan and Eilat, Golan Heights and the Dead Sea, the Wailing Wall and night bars of Tel Aviv. One of the main objectives is to strengthen the ties between the State of Israel and expat communities. The other goal is to introduce young Jews to places associated with the history of the Jewish nation and famous Israeli sights as well as the life of Jews in Israel.
