Birthright Israel has opened applications for its 2015/2016 Winter season.

Birthright Israel will also be introducing several new opportunities for participants this year:

  • The Birthright Israel Academic program, an extended 13-day trip offering up to three college credits through Tel Aviv University. Participants will have the option to select from two highly dynamic courses in business, entrepreneurship and international relations.
  • Birthright Israel Focus, a new pilot program offering participants a 7-8 day trip during spring break that will have two tracks. One will focus on the geopolitical reality of Israel and will allow participants to speak with experts on politics, diplomacy, human rights, Israeli-US relations and the changing realities of the Arab World. The second track will focus on life in contemporary Israel.
