Registration for the Summer 2013 Taglit-Birthright Israel trips with URJ Kesher opens on February 13, 2013 at www.gokesher.org!
If you are eligible for the Taglit-Birthright Israel program (Eligibility criteria are: Jewish, 18-26 years of age, and first time in Israel on a peer program), please contact Rabbi Elder because he can put Hakafa members on a priority list with URJ Kesher.
URJ Kesher is a part of the Reform Movement, and their Birthright trips are specially designed for participants who come from a Reform Jewish background.
Summer trips will be offered in May, June, July, and August, and they expect that registration will be closing very, very early again this season - - most probably within 24-48 hours of opening.
Please contact Rabbi Elder ASAP if you are interested.
You should also sign-up NOW for URJ Kesher's Early Update List to learn more about how to register.
