Avi Smith ’09 sends in the following info:
Heard of Birthright? It’s a free trip to Israel, happening over winter break, and you’re eligible as long as you have at least one Jewish parent and haven’t been on a peer trip to Israel since you were 12. The trip will probably be all Wesleyan students and their friends.
Registration for Birthright is Sept 10th, a week from Wednesday, so if you’re thinking of going, you need to act fast!! They are having fewer and fewer Birthright trips each year because of rising gas prices and the dollar going down, so this is the year to go!
– Sunday, Sept 7, 3pm, the Bayit (157 Church St) and
– Thursday, September 4, 7:30 pm also at the Bayit
You only need to come to one meeting, and bring your laptop if you can.
If you’re considering going at all, you should come to the meeting. registration is soon and fills up fast!
If you have more questions, check out www.israelexperts.com/taglit or
email Avi Smith(aesmith) or Rachel Berkowitz (rberkowitz).
It’s a pretty sweet (and totally free) trip full of interesting dialogue, and Avi and Rachel are pretty much going to be the greatest leaders ever. I highly recommend it.
