Birthright is Wonderful

     The generous people who are funding the Taglit–Birthright program are getting a tremendous return on their money. Over the past 13 years, the program has brought more than 340,000 young Jewish adults from 62 countries to Israel on free 10-day trips.

     The idea is to bring young Jews from all over the world to Israel so they will learn to love the country. Let them see the actual place, and not just the horribly biased media reports of Israel that they are flooded with in their countries.

     But the program has brought an even greater benefit. They have now found that Birthright participants are far more likely to marry Jews than are non-participants. Their latest research shows that 73 percent of participants in the program ultimately marry other Jews, as compared with just 50 percent among non-participants.

     What a wonderful thing to give a Jew…the knowledge that their lives will be worlds better, if only they marry a Jew.
