About Bring Israel Home
What is Bring Israel Home?
Bring Israel Home is an incredible opportunity for returning Taglit-Birthright Israel participants to define and form your Jewish identities through engaging with Jewish
activities that are meaningful to you. It allows you to create an individualized narrative of your Jewish experience. Here at Bring Israel Home, we believe that a self-guided
journey exploring Judaism will lead to informed, passionate and committed Jewish engagement.
If you were going to explore your Judaism, where would your journey lead you? Our approach to Jewish exploration is “Try It, Love It, Live It!”
Explore and develop your Jewish identity. TRY Jewish activities that appeal to your interests.
Let us know if you LOVE (or didn’t!) your hand-picked Jewish experiences! Would you Try It again?
Once you find those Jewish activities that speak to you, continue to LIVE your individualized Jewish journey!
Take the Challenge today! Try It, Love It, Live It!
The creation of Bring Israel Home
Bring Israel Home was created in 2012 after our staff spoke with hundreds of participants who had just returned from a Taglit-Birthright trip. Their responses were pretty
consistent; despite having an incredible and inspiring Taglit-Birthright experience, they lacked the resources to engage with, connect to, and explore their Jewish identities
upon returning to the USA.
An Ecosystem of Jewish organizations
Bring Israel Home is an ecosystem of Jewish organizations, each contributing their skills, resources and time to make it so successful. Current partners in the program include;
Aish NY, Hasbara Fellowships, JerusalemU, JNF, Masa, the OU, One Soldier Speak, OneTable and the URJ.
