Your chance to visit Israel for FREE

Progressive Jews have the chance to visit Israel for FREE as part of UJIA Birthright in partnership with Liberal Judaism and Reform Judaism.

lj_birthrightThe Birthright trip is open to any Progressive Jew aged 20-26, who has not already been on an organised educational visit to Israel. It will take place from August 15-25.

It will include the chance to explore ancient sites and modern cities, encounter Israel’s diverse population and experience Israeli Progressive Judaism.

Liberal Judaism’s Student and Young Adult Chaplain Rabbi Leah Jordan said: “Participants will be able see and consider Israel through Progressive eyes - so the trip will include experiences and visits that you just wouldn't find on any other Birthright trip, as well as taking a fresh look at all the things you'd expect on an Israel tour.

“A Progressive Birthright trip is also going to enable us to be a community together - praying Progressively, engaging with Judaism and learning with one another.”

Rabbi Benji Stanley, Young Adult Development Rabbi for Reform Judaism, added: “We are delighted to be doing a UJIA Birthright trip in partnership with Liberal Judaism for the first time.

“This is a great chance for a group of young adults to come on an inspiring trip to Israel for free and to connect to their Jewish identity, and explore the exciting work of the Progressive and secular movements in Israel.”
