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

ย 

After 10 days of cultural exploration in Israel, your Birthright Israel trip will end. While everyone else is headed back home, youโ€™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 Israelโ€™s experienced and highly knowledgeable staff. Birthright Israel Plus groups are made up of only 20-25 participants so youโ€™ll be part of a more intimate community.

How does it work?

ย 

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?

ย 

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!ย
