Is it really free?
Yes, the program is free. This includes airfare on El-Al Airlines, accommodations at quality hotels, and almost all meals.

Students will need to arrange their own transportation to the city of departure, and are expected to pay for several of their own meals in Israel. That's it!
What will we do when we are there?
Why are these trips free?
birthright israel is a unique partnership between the people of Israel through their government, local Jewish communities and Federations (through the United Jewish Communities, Keren Hayesod and The Jewish Agency for Israel), and leading Jewish philanthropists. The goal of these exciting tours is to inspire in our participants a stronger connection to the Jewish people, Jewish life and to the Jewish State of Israel while having a great time!
