Can we truly strengthen the Jewish future?August 8, 2018 at 7:00 pm
You may have heard us say this before: Birthright Israel is strengthening the Jewish future.
But what does that mean?
In many ways, the Jewish future is a numbers game. The longevity of our people is tied to the number of Jews who embrace our heritage in the years to come, enabling our community to grow and thrive. For that reason, the single most important way we can impact the Jewish tomorrow is by instilling a passion for Jewish identity in more young Jews today!
That is why your generosity is so significant. Birthright Israel Foundation has reached a new milestone. We have sent 650,000 participants and Mifgash on this extraordinary educational journey with Birthright Israel to discover the legacy of our people.
What kind of impact does that have?
In cities and towns across the U.S. – and the world – more young Jewish adults have been given the chance to develop a meaningful relationship with their Jewish heritage. And study after study has shown this leads to more young Jewish adults being committed to joining synagogues, raising a family in the Jewish tradition, and marrying a Jewish partner.
Because of you, a new generation of young Jewish adults is embracing who they are and where they come from. And because they feel deeply connected to their Jewish identity, the Jewish people will thrive for generations.
Your impact is immediate. It is tangible. It is life-changing. Together, we can ensure the longevity of our people and truly strengthen the Jewish future.Blog Home
