Kol HaKavod to the Young Judaea Taglit Birthright team. YJ Birthright received a certificate of excellence in programming for its winter 2011-2012 season. The certificate—presented in Tel Aviv at a convention attended by all the Birthright organizers (YJ is one of many)—noted Young Judaea’s “innovative development of new educational programs.”
Taglit Birthright offers free trips to Jewish young adults, ages 18-26, who have never been to Israel on a peer program. Registration for this summer is closed, but registration for the winter trips will open on September 11 for one week only.
