Birthright Israel trips are open to participants ages 18-32.
College is definitely a typical time to go on Birthright, and we recommend strongly considering it if it’s an option for you at the right age. There are many trips for those ages 18-22, including campus-specific trips [LINK TO COLLEGE TRIPS], classic itineraries, and multiple specialized trips — including the unique extended study abroad options [LINK TO GUIDE]. In addition, college is a prime time to take your first trip to Israel on Birthright because of the built-in breaks. If you can take the 10 days to travel to Israel, it’s really great to do. Even better: Go during a longer break and extend your trip to take advantage of the free travel provided by the program and to see more of the wonderful elements in Israel!
If you’re close to graduating or at the top of your age range, we recommend considering a young professionals trip rather than a college trip — there’s a huge difference between participants who are 18 and 22. If you’re 22 and about to start a job, we recommend waiting or booking a trip with other recent grads, rather than a campus trip.
Whether you’re 22 or 32, there are some really unique specialized trips for young professionals. In addition to the classic and adventure itineraries, there are some specialized trips for professionals in specific industries, such as Wall Street, politics, and entertainment. This is a great way to make sure your Birthright Israel trip is fun and meaningful.
At any age, there are a few other eligibility requirements to consider:
There are no eligibility guidelines around political views.
