Registering for a Birthright Israel Trip
Pre-Registration is Now OPEN. Click here to apply!
Birthright Israel opens registration twice a year, once for the summer season and once for winter. Pre-registration is open year-round and gives you priority status for the trips of your choice!
What if I’m Not Sure I Want to Go?
Apply anyway! You’ll still have a number of steps ahead of you before the trip is finalized, and you can back out at any point during the registration before then.
A bit about the registration process:
YOU WILL NEED:
- Any email address that is not .edu
- A credit card or PayPal account for the refundable deposit
- A box of cookies (okay, that one is optional)
Birthright Israel requires everyone to fill out the 5-part application where you’ll choose your trip organizer (that’s us!), determine you’re fully eligible, and choose the trips that work for you! It should take you about 12 minutes. If you get stuck or confused at any point, just give us a call and we’ll walk you through it.
On the main application form you’ll tell us about yourself, your Jewish background, and why you want to go on this trip, as well as a few other things we need to know to get you started.

- If you don’t have a valid passport right now, don’t worry! You can always fill in this information later. Just be sure to apply for one ASAP.
The One-on-One Convo
Every applicant receives a 10-15 minute phone call where we get to know you better in order to place you on the trip that will fit you best!
The Trip Offer
About 1-3 weeks after you apply, we’ll e-mail you an offer for one of our trips if you’re selected. You’ll have the choice to accept or decline. Remember to complete everything as soon as possible!
