Shorashim will once again offer a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip for Jewish 18 to 26 year olds with Aspergers Syndrome. Our winter 2014/2015 trip runs from Sunday, December 21, 2014-Thursday, January 1, 2015.
This 10 day Israel adventure features a smaller group of participants and a high staff-to-participant ratio. Our specialized itinerary is created in partnership with experienced, specially trained staff and is carefully structured to be enjoyable and informative for this population. The program includes a multi-day mifgash (encounter) with Israeli peers, a less intense rhythm of the day than most other Taglit-Birthright Israel trips, visits to ancient and modern sites of interest, and an incomparable Shabbat.
