Instructions:
Click on the link below. You’ll be taken to the Shorashim website, our partner for the Taglit-Birthright Israel program. Follow their instructions to register (you’ll end up clicking through to the Birthright Israel website itself). You’ll select Shorashim as the Trip Provider. KOACH and KOACH-Special Needs will both appear in the drop-down menu for Shorashim. Make your choice and you’re on your way!

Please know that when registration initially opens, the system is often swamped. Be persistent! It’s important to try to register as soon as possible, even if you aren’t sure you will travel. Taglit-Birthright Israel has been known to close registration early and with little warning. It’s far better to register no matter what; you will be able to withdraw without penalty up until some time in November (we’ll tell you when).

If you run into any difficulties, or have any questions, please be in touch with us at koachbirthright@uscj.org. L’hitraot B’Yisrael! (See you soon in Israel!)

The story behind Taglit-Birthright Israel

Initiated by philanthropists Charles R. Bronfman and Michael H. Steinhardt, Taglit-Birthright Israel is the most extensive philanthropic Jewish outreach program ever to target Jewish young adults. Taglit-Birthright Israel’s mission is to present lifelong Jewish values to Jewish young adults worldwide through a first educational peer-group trip to Israel.

The Taglit-Birthright Israel gift is made possible through a $210 million partnership from a group of prominent philanthropists, local Jewish Federations, the people of Israel through their government, Keren Hayesod and The Israel Experience Ltd.

The Taglit-Birthright Israel gift covers roundtrip airfare plus 10-days of educational programming in Israel. Any Jewish youth, 18-26 (post high-school), who has never been to Israel on a peer-group educational program, is eligible to apply for the Taglit-Birthright Israel gift.
