Announcing birthright israel’s Summer 2007 Registration

Taglit-birthright israel is kicking off registration for its Summer 2007 trips today.

What is birthright israel? From their website:

Taglit-birthright israel provides the gift of first time, peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26. Taglit-birthright israel’s founders created this program to send thousands of young Jewish adults from all over the world to Israel as a gift in order to diminish the growing division between Israel and Jewish communities around the world; to strengthen the sense of solidarity among world Jewry; and to strengthen participants’ personal Jewish identity and connection to the Jewish people.

birthright’s positive impact on the Jewish identity of its participants has been well-documented. This summer, birthright will be taking 20,000 young Jews to Israel, double its normal capacity, thanks to casino mogul Sheldon Adelson.
