Every summer, Beach Hillel offers Jewish students and community members who are between the ages of 18 and 26 to join us for a 10-day FREE trip to Israel. Through 2015, more than 500,000 young Jewish people from 66 countries have received the gift of a free trip to Israel.
“Taglit” means “discovery” in Hebrew, and that, in a word, is the goal of the trip – a discovery of Israel and its people, discovery of one’s own personal connection to Jewish values and tradition, and discovery of the ways in which one can be a part of the larger Jewish community.
You should join our Taglit-Birthright Israel trip for three main reasons:
- In our trip, we make sure to choose the best trip provider and have Beach Hillel staff to staff the trip along with an Israeli tour guide, medic and bus driver. And, of course, IDF soldiers will be joining our group once we are in Israel.
- We make sure that, on our trip, you have a priority as a Beach Hillel student and you can have a sibling or a friend from the area to join us.
- We host orientation sessions before the trip in order for you to get to know some of the students that will be with you on the trip and get to know the staff. Also, you will have the opportunity to learn a little about Israel and the places where we will be traveling, as well as to be able to ask all your questions before the trip.
