Dear Travelers & Friends,
After over a year of near-total closure, the State of Israel has begun to welcome back travelers on a pilot basis. We are elated by the good news!
Practically speaking, our Birthright Israel experiences and our teen Israel experiences are fully operational this summer. Programs for adults and families will re-open more slowly in a phased approach, and we expect to resume these regularly scheduled programs in October 2021. Israel will issue detailed guidance on entry rules shortly, which will likely require proof of vaccination and/or a positive antibody test. We look forward to sharing the specifics as soon as they are available.
Of course, certainty remains elusive with all plans, and to provide additional peace of mind, we are relaxing our adult and family tour cancellation policies for the duration of this public health emergency. Program deposits will be considered fully refundable until 60 days prior to your scheduled program start date – by which point we will make a final determination about whether the program can proceed.
Thank you for your patience during this tumultuous period, and we do look forward to hosting you in the near (and healthier) future.
