MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel

MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel


How can I possibly even begin to summarize this summer?
2 months
3 incredible groups
Countless experiences, moments, people and encounters…
It's all too much for one post, and anyway each group deserves their own… So I'll break it down 😊

First, I had my first ever (!) Taglit-Birthright Israel !!
When young 20-something (and two 30-something!) year olds come together from across the western United Sates to discover their Jewish heritage and the land of Israel, magic happens. Every moment on this trip was an opportunity for growth, learning, connection and I am so honored to have been able to be on this journey with my participants, who taught me as much as I did them.
Shout out to the unbelievable facilitators MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel and מסע יהודי It was a pleasure working with such wonderful and hard-working people on this trip. Thank you!
What an amazing partnership with Maayanot!
Thank you for the zchut of doing beautiful things together!! MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel
It was a true honor to celebrate yesterday with Talia and Jeremy the beginning of their life together with a special Ketubah ceremony in our home. You are building your home on the foundations of our eternal heritage of Torah and mitzvos, and we know that you will bring light and love to all around you. Mazal Tov to the Nour-Omid and Schmerling families.

Also, a huge Mazal Tov to two other alumn couples who've been couples since their student days and tied the knot this weekend:
Charles and Nicole met on our birthright trip 7 years ago. (It's the ultimate Birthright dream! MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel ) Mazal Tov to you and to the entire Seltzer and Farage families. So sorry we couldn't make it there in person!

And Sami and Josh were already a couple when she transferred in to USC. It's so special to see your story continue now on to building a home together. Mazal Tov to you and the Viterbi and Lurie families!
When we asked students what makes the single most popular trip from all the other birthright providers the unanimous answer was a Shabbat experience.

We are heading into Shabbat at the Kotel with 25 other mayanot groups; that’s over 900 students and Rabbi’s!
An authentic Shabbat experience in Jerusalem is just getting started.
And now we know why MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel is the largest provider of birthright! Grateful, thankful and humbled to be here with the MSUcrew 💕!

Shabbat Shalom from the Kotel!
Hi, I went on a Mayanot trip in 2002, before facebook existed, and the internet was but a baby, so there's no trace of my trip. However, I filmed basically everything, and am currently digitalizing all my tapes... so if you think you were on the trip with me, please feel free to contact me.

(The problem with introducing yourselves using only a first name is that it's impossible to find you later on even if you were caught on tape, so here's my tip for any of you moving forward!)

Rabbi Shlomo Gestetner who directs the Mayanot Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, one of Birthright’s providers, says “the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe and now in the United States makes this such an important time to strengthen Jewish identity. And the only lasting way to do that is to come to the land filled with Jewish history, where you can hear our ancient language spoken on the street and walk on the same 2,000-year-old stones our ancestors walked on.” MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel
Please share!
Looks like tourism is coming back!!
MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel is hiring trip specialists to help bring hundreds of young Jewish people to Israel this summer! Help us make it happen!

“I love all of Israel, but my happy place is the beautiful market of Jerusalem.

I was born and raised in Jerusalem, and today live in the Machane Yehuda neighborhood, right next to the famous market.
Over the past few years, I have guided many groups of tourists from all over the world such as Taglit-Birthright Israel , NCSY Summer and many more.
I decided to combine my love for people, Jerusalem, and good high-quality food. Therefore, I opened a young and vibrant venture for culinary food tours at Machane Yehuda market, which is literally my back yard.
I love the shuk for many reasons. The beautiful and colorful alleyways, the warm hearted people, the fact that it’s one of the most recognizable icons of the city, the unique scene that takes place only here, one can see the city's elders drink strong black coffee and play backgammon as they walk alongside the colorful vegetable stands and tourists who come to the market from all over the world.
COVID-19 kind of changes the whole picture. No more tourists for now. The shuk & tours have been half closed during this period. My friends from the market struggle to survive and to go through this hard time.
Lockdown made us all think outside the box, so I decided to put together a breakfast box from the best of the best of Mahane Yehuda market! A cooperation between me and my friends from the market. Each package contains handmade dips, drinks and pastries, fresh bread, plenty of fruits and vegetables from the market, boutique cheeses and more!

For orders feel free to DM us.

Looking forward seeing you all back in Jerusalem!”
“Once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each of them with a cane in their hand because of their age. The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.”
(Zecharia, 8)

Thank you Tair Ben Moshe!

Thank you MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel, for giving us the opportunity to share our passion with the Birthright community. Watch as Idan, a young bone marrow recipient, catches up with his donor, who joined the registry while on his Mayanot trip!
Founders of the Hyper IgM Foundation were live this evening with Gift of Life Marrow Registry to talk about the importance of joining the registries for bone marrow donations. Their son, Idan, was saved by a donor that joined the registry during a MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel trip in 2015. Many of our Hyper IgM Syndrome patients need bone marrow transplants and joining a registry means you might be a match for them and a chance to save someone's life.
Join our CEO and Founder Jay Feinberg and Stem Cell Donor Ben Atwater at 6PM ET this evening on MAYANOT: Taglit-Birthright Israel's Facebook Live. The link to the zoom chat: (password Mayanot).
