The Jewish Federation of San Diego is a partner of the Birthright Israel Foundation. Created in 2000, Birthright Israel gives Diaspora Jewry ages 18 to 26 the chance to experience Israel with the gift of a 10-day trip. The program is based on the belief that it is every Jewish person’s birthright to visit Israel. Birthright connects Jewish communities with Israel and provides young people with an opportunity to explore and strengthen their Jewish identity. The Jewish Federation strongly supports Birthright Israel and has created Community Trips for young adults between the ages of 18 and 26. Community trips are comprised of 40 young adults from San Diego and 2 staff that are highly knowledgeable and involved in the community. This is a great opportunity to make new friends that you can easily stay connected with (in person) after Israel.
