CEO Sam Asher's July Update

The Magic of Israel ​ 

Everyone has heard of Birthright Israel, but not everyone knows JCFR helps to fund this program.  Under this initiative, 530,000 young adults have traveled to Israel. The three sources of funding for Birthright Israel are: the government of Israel, Major Donors to Birthright and Jewish Federations from around the United States and the Diaspora.

Birthright Israel provides a precious gift of an all-expense paid, educational trip to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18-26, who have never before traveled to the Jewish State on an organized tour.  Program founders believe it is every Jewish person’s birthright to visit Israel. We know participants return home with a greater appreciation of their Jewishness and a stronger sense of connection to the Jewish people and their communities.  I know this first-hand!
