Here’s the link! Start your adventure today!

STEP #2: Primary Application & Deposit

On registration day (September 8), go to our YJ page at BirthrightIsrael.com

Start the “Primary Application” which includes 8 sections. Make sure you select “Young Judaea” as your trip provider! (The application shouldn’t take you longer than 20 minutes)

Select your trip type and preferred travel month.

Submit a refundable $250 deposit online.

Note: We highly encourage all applicants to complete the Primary Application on the FIRST day of registration!

STEP #3: Personal Profile & Trip Dates

Between 24-48 hours of completing your Primary Application, we’ll contact you with a link to our “Personal Profile.” (If you lose the link, you can access your personal profile here)

View and select actual trip dates, then choose a good time for your interview. This is not final, just to give us an idea of your availability.

Tell us if you have anyone you specifically want to travel with.

Tell us about any medical or dietary restrictions.

STEP #4: Phone Interview

We will be calling you for your interview from a 972 phone number, so if you see this number on your Caller ID make sure you pick up. If you miss our call please try to call us back within 48 hours. We will do our best to contact you for a phone interview based on the availability you entered in your personal profile. It can take 2-3 week before we contact you, but don’t worry the order which you are interviewed has no impact on whether or not you are assigned a trip spot.

Learn about the requirements for going on Birthright.

STEP #5: Accept Your Trip

“Now’s the exciting part! Approximately 3 weeks after registration opens we will begin to send out actual flight offers. We send flight offers in order of the earliest trip to the latest trip, so if you signed up for a January trip you may be waiting a few more weeks to receive your flight offer than someone who signed up for an early December trip.

Flight offers expire after 48 hours so please make sure to accept the flight offer as soon as you can. To make sure you don’t miss your flight offer please add toisraelnow@yji.org.il to your safe sender’s list.

To accept or decline a flight offer please logon to your personal profile. All the terms and conditions will be listed in your flight offer so please read through them carefully before you accept or decline your offer. If any of the terms and conditions are unclear or confusing we are always here to help – call, tweet, or email at 1-866-520-9993, toisraelnow@yji.or.il or @toisraelnow.

How Are Participants Selected?

We start assigning applicants to trips as soon as you’ve completed your Primary Application including submitting a refundable trip deposit. To give yourself the best chance of getting on the trip you want, we recommend completing your Primary Application on the first day of registration. All first-day applications will be treated the same no matter what time of day they are received. Additionally, priority trip selection status is granted to applicants who have applied in the past as well as applicants who are age 26 and about to age out of the program.
