Extend Your Adventure


Ten days in Israel just isn’t enough! Starting this year, you can get MORE from your Birthright Israel trip. Keep your Israel adventure going for an additional 4 or 5 days with one of our brand new extension programs. You’ll have more free time as well as the opportunity to meet and connect with participants from different Birthright Israel groups from around the world! Our winter sessions are in full swing. This summer we will have programs available on May 21st, June 10th, June 17th, July 1st, July 15th, and August 5th. Come back in February to see what exciting options we’ll have for you.

After 10 days of cultural exploration in Israel, your Birthright Israel trip will come to a close. While everyone else is headed back home, you’ll get a short period to rest up and explore a bit on your own before starting a new 4- or 5-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 Israel’s experienced and highly knowledgeable staff. Plus groups are made up of only 20-25 participants so you’ll be part of a more intimate community.
