Birthright sets record for summer participants

The participants came from 32 countries

Birthright, the free 10-day trip to Israel, has brought a record 30,000 young Jewish people on its trips this summer.

The number of summer participants, coming one year after Israel endured a 50-day war last summer, is Birthright’s highest in its 15 years of existence. The participants came from 32 countries on six continents, and were joined by 5,000 Israeli soldiers and students, according to a Wednesday press release.

Birthright brings Jews aged 18 to 26 on a free trip that takes them to a range of historical, religious and outdoor sites across Israel. Overall, half a million people have gone on Birthright’s trips.
