About Birthright Israel Enhancement’s
Your thoughtful gift to OU’s Birthright Israel Enhancement and Follow Up programs means so much, and helps to support our work by engaging and inspiring today’s young Jewish adults to care about their Jewish future.
At the forefront of promoting Jewish pride among the next generation, OU Israel Free Spirit Birthright tours connect young people with the traditions and cultural richness of our Jewish heritage. For the more than 10,000 young people who have enjoyed the enhancements of the OU IFS adventure over the past three years, your support has brought a renewed understanding of Israel, strengthened Jewish identity, and built a lasting bond between young Jewish people around the globe and their peers in Israel.
The OU also provides follow-up programming for all Birthright alumni, with phone calls to sign them up for learning programs, opportunities for alumni to host their friends for Shabbat, and group challenges that require alumni to complete various Jewish activities/mitzvoth.
Your generosity has a profound impact and your partnership speaks volumes about your caring for the Jewish community of tomorrow.
