Israel Matters at KI

Birthright Israel Foundation/Jewish Federation Appeal

BirthrightFoundation_logoJoin the KI Community in support of the Birthright Israel Foundation/Jewish Federation appeal. Each year, tens of thousands of young adults from around the world receive the gift of a free 10-day educational trip to Israel. They return with a stronger sense of identity, a sense of belonging and a closeness to Israel and the Jewish people. In 2010 over 2,000 people from Los Angeles went on the Birthright trip but 5,000 remained on a waiting list. Your gift will help to insure that more young adults from Los Angeles get to participate in the future. If you know a young adult who has participated in a Birthright trip, this is a chance to pay it forward!

Click here to make a donation to the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles’ Birthright Israel Program. 100% of your contribution for this special Kehillat Israel appeal and a one to one matching gift will go to supporting Birthright Israel trips for our young adults.
