Birthright is an experience like none other. To see the country that belongs to our people with friends from Northeastern was something I will always remember. Apart from building relationships with other Jews at Northeastern, I finally felt a connection to the land that belongs to the Jewish people, and now realize how important it is for Israel to exist. Go on the trip, you will realize it is so much more than a free ten day vacation; it is an experience like none other.

I had no idea what to expect upon signing up for Birthright, but the trip beat all expectations that I could have had. The experience is unforgettable. It was amazing to meet 40 Jewish students from Northeastern and 8 awesome Israelis. We were all able to bond over the incredible experiences, making our new friendships really special. Our sleepless nights, fun adventures around Israel, and unique opportunities all contributed to everlasting memories of this incomparable trip. Israel is really special and Birthright is the perfect opportunity to discover that!

Birthright with Northeastern was a great experience for me. It allowed me to explore and engage in an incredible culture and country, and better understand my heritage and ancestors. Everyday was a highlight, with each section of the country bringing something unique to the trip. I can’t think of a better way to connect with your roots, meet new friends, and explore an incredible country.
