Not just a free trip.
This summer, an estimated 40,000 young American Jews will embark on a trip to Israel led by Taglit-Birthright. For our entire generation, going on Birthright has been seen as a rite of passage in our Jewish journey. But we can no longer allow a free trip that hides the truth about the Occupation be synonymous with being a young Jewish person in America.
This summer, we are urging Taglit-Birthright to tell the truth about the Israeli Occupation to the tens of thousands of young American Jews that will participate in its programming.
