Why Young Judaea
There is more than one Taglit-Birthright Israel trip because we all know that no two people come to Israel with the same hopes and dreams. So why choose Young Judaea? Here are the top-10 reasons why!
- An Organization You Can Trust
Young Judaea is a not-for-profit organization with a track record of 60+ years creating meaningful Israel programs for young adults. Our only mission is the success of your experience.
- Designed for All Jewish Backgrounds
Our Taglit-Birthright Israel trips are designed for Jewish young adults of all backgrounds and we provide a non-denominational pluralistic environment for our participants.
- Hands-On Experiential Travel
We understand that coming to Israel is more than a tour. While we cover all of the highlights of Israel, we also emphasize a hands-on travel experience...filling your senses with the life, smells, tastes, sounds, and texture of modern Israel.
- A Relaxed Environment
Our staff works hard to build a travelling community that is inclusive and always relaxed. Part of experiencing Taglit-Birthright Israel is about opening yourself to new experiences with new friends. Creating the right group dynamics is the best place to start.
- Focus on Culture, Co-Existence & Community
We focus on the Israel that lies beyond the headlines. Experience the art and culture of modern Israel. Give something back by participating in a social action project. Look to the future by delving into ongoing co-existence efforts.
- Cross-Cultural Friendships with Israeli Peers
Each group will be joined by Israeli peers, who will share their experiences and unique perspectives on life in Israel.
- Top-Notch Staff Team
Our trip staff includes experienced Jewish educators and leaders, many of whom are alumni of Young Judaea programs.
- Separate Groups for College Students and Young Professionals
Our trips are divided into separate groups for 18-22 year-olds and 22-26 year-olds. For those looking to travel with friends or family that are beyond their age group, our specialty trips are open to participants 18-26.
- Nationwide and Community-Based Trip Choices
We offer both national trip as well as campus and community specific trips.
- Special Interest Program Options
In addition to our classic "Israel Now" experience, we offer niche programs for participants with special interests.
Our alumni have said that they could not imagine going with another organization. Experience your own once-in-a-lifetime Taglit-Birthright Israel adventure with Young Judaea. We’ll see you in Israel!
