Next Steps & Tips

To increase your chances of being placed on one of your top trip choices, it is important to complete these steps as early as possible in the registration process. Save your spot & have the option of traveling; don’t wait too long & regret it once trips are full.

Trip acceptances will be conditional until you receive a second email from us confirming that you are approved for travel.

You must upload a copy of your passport no later than two months before your departure date. It needs to be valid through September 2021,or six months after your return date. You can either take a clear picture of your passport & upload it to your application or Birthright Israel App to scan your passport.

You should not make travel plans or book any domestic travel until you have an unconditional confirmed spot on the program & have been given their exact flight details, including notification of the departure gateway.

If you have any questions, please call us at (312) 267-0677, email us at or chat with us. We're here to help you through this process!
