Taglit-Birthright Israel Launches the Israeli Taglit Society

With a goal to raise awareness, build crucial bridges and strengthen ties among public opinion leaders in Israel to those abroad, Israeli opinion leaders and business executives have come together to establish the Israeli Taglit Society.

In announcing the new initiative, Meir Shamir, the Society’s chairman, said, “Given the troubling data on assimilation impacting the strength of Israel, I see great importance in the establishment of the Israeli Taglit Society in raising the awareness of the negative consequences of assimilation. Its [sic] time we Israeli’s [sic] join the worldwide support of Taglit-Birthright Israel and take responsibility for building a safer future for our children and the Jewish generations to come.”
