Spend time exploring your interests with participants from around the world.


After 10 days of cultural exploration in Israel, your Birthright Israel trip will end. While everyone else is headed back home, you’ll get a short period to rest up and explore a bit on your own before starting a new 4-7-day experience focusing on a particular area of interest (no prior knowledge or experience needed).

Birthright Israel Plus offers a slightly more relaxed schedule, giving you the opportunity to curate your own experience with the support network of Birthright Israel’s experienced and highly knowledgeable staff. Birthright Israel Plus groups are made up of only 20-25 participants so you’ll be part of a more intimate community.

How does it work?


Once you are assigned to your flight for your Birthright Israel trip, you can register to be a part of any Birthright Israel Plus program that suits your passions. Fill out our short registration form, have a personal follow-up (call), and then we will submit your flight extension request for processing.

Ho much does it cost?


The program fee is highly subsidized: $250, which will cover the costs of lodging, food, and transportation while on your program.
Current participants can use their Birthright deposit towards the cost of the program!
