Shorashim will once again be partnering with USCJ to offer a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip for Jewish 18 to 26 year olds with Aspergers Syndrome Winter 2013/2014.
This ten-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.
