Dietary Needs & Special Needs

Everyone deserves to feel comfortable going on their Birthright Israel trip. At Israel Free Spirit, we’ve had over 20 years of experience accommodating our participants’ needs in all ways possible. Just let us know your situation and we’ll be happy to work together to fulfill your requests.

Dietary Needs

Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, lactose intolerant, peanut-free, glatt kosher or allergic to 15 different types of fruit, we’ve got you covered. Input your dietary and allergy requests in the “Travel” section of your application and we’ll make sure you’ll have more than enough to eat!

Severe Cases:
In highly sensitive food cases, we’ve worked with the hotel’s kitchen crew to provide special meals or carried around a large cooler with pre-prepared food for participants. You will be well taken care of, no matter what you need. We’re here to help.

All Israel Free Spirit trips adhere to kosher guidelines.
Food served on the Modern Orthodox trips are Mehadrin based on OU kosher standards. The food served for the Single Gender trips maintain Badatz Mehadrin standard.

If you have a special request on our standard co-ed trips, please input it in the “Travel” section of your application.
