During the grey and rainy Vancouver winter it’s only natural to daydream of a sunny summer adventure in Israel. If you’re a young Jewish adult aged 18 to 26, you’re in luck: Taglit-Birthright Israel registration is about to open, and you could be on your way to Israel for a free, 10-day experience of a lifetime.

Taglit-Birthright Israel provides the gift of a first time educational trip to Israel free of charge to young adults. Jewish Federation, the Israeli government and leading Jewish philanthropists have partnered together to cover the cost of these trips. Every year, Jewish Federation allocates more than $40,000 from the Annual Campaign to send local Jewish young people on Taglit-Birthright Israel trips. MORE
