Trip Options

Each year Young Judaea partners with a select number of cutting-edge organizations as well as local Hillels and Jewish Federations to provide an unmatched Taglit-Birthright Israel experience specifically for that group.

Important Note: These trips may not be listed as options on the Primary Application, but you will be able to choose them on your Secondary Application. Learn more about the registration process.

Classic:

This is the trip we all imagine Birthright to be – the same amazing trip experience you have heard about from your friends and family. Take a selfie at the top of Masada, live-Tweet your camel ride through the desert, and Facebook-friend that cute Israeli soldier once you’ve figured out how to spell his or her last name. Our Classic Taglit-Birthright Israel: Young Judaea trips are designed for Jewish young adults of all backgrounds and with no specific political or religious affiliation and who aren’t afraid of eating too much falafel. This is more than a trip…this is your chance to make an impact as you fill your senses with the life, smells, tastes, sounds, and sights of Israel.

New Age:

The trip of choice for artists, musicians, people who value independent thinking and alternative lifestyles, and anyone with dreadlocks. This trip builds on our classic itinerary and includes a special emphasis on the sub-cultures of Israeli society, providing an in-depth look at Israel’s urban life, compelling artwork, ethnic music scene, and alternative medicine practices. You will explore five unique components: wellness, spirituality, nature, art, and ecology, with the optional sixth component: enjoying some seriously delicious vegan shawarma.

Family and Friends:

For the person who likes sharing incredible life experiences with the most important people in their lives, our Family and Friends trip blends the familiarity of home with the Classic itinerary and all the discoveries that are waiting for you in Israel. Best of all, there’s no need to worry who you’ll sit next to on the bus – because you and your brother/sister/cousin/best-friend have already decided who gets the window seat.
