We are only able to place you on a trip with friends if they also register with Israel Outdoors as their Birthright Israel trip organizer. Make a plan with your friends to select “Tlalim-Israel Outdoors” as part of pre-registration and also when it comes time to complete the full primary application!
You can officially let us know if you have a travel companion request when you complete your Secondary Application. As part of that form, you can search for friends who also registered and tag them as travel buddy requests. If you can’t find them, it means they probably didn’t sign up for Israel Outdoors. Make sure they fix that!
Once trip dates are finalized we will ask you to enter your trip date preferences in the Secondary Application. You’ll be able to view and rank all trips that you might possibly be willing to join. Make sure that you and your friends rank the same exact trips in the same exact preference order. This will really help us match you together on the same trip.
Birthright Israel is an innovative partnership between the people of Israel through the Government of Israel, private philanthropists and thousands of donors and Jewish communities around the world (North American Jewish Federations through the Jewish Federations of North America; the Jewish Agency for Israel; and Keren Hayesod).
