Birthright Israel with UMass
Who is eligible?
All Jewish students between the age of 18 and 26 who have at least one Jewish parent and have not been to Israel on an organized trip after age 18, can go on the FREE 10-day Birthright Israel trip together with other UMass Jewish students! (To clarify... even if you have been on a high school trip to Israel, you are still eligible to go on this trip!)
What is it?
Birthright is a totally free 10 day trip to Israel. Tour around this fascinating tiny country, see the heights of the desert fortress of Masada, float in the Dead Sea, be inspired at the Western Wall, and remember the tragedy of the holocaust at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Hike and swim in the beautiful north, go kayaking in the Jordan River, and see the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee). We also get a chance to spend a night under the stars in Bedouin tents in the desert. Discover Israel, connect with Judaism in whatever way feels right, and make friends who will last you a lifetime!
