Step Two
Sign Up For Priority Status
Before Birthright Israel registration opens, you have the chance to sign up for priority status by pre-registering for one of the next two seasons!
By pre-registering, you can fill out your application before the general public does! It's non-committal, so beat the rush & increase your chances of getting placed on a top trip choice!
Take 30 seconds to get priority status by pre-registering for your Birthright Israel application with Shorashim!


You can now fill out your Birthright Israel application, Shorashim application, AND complete your phone interview for summer 2019 between Tuesday, November 27th & Friday, January 25th. Beat the rush, so that once registration opens on Monday, January 28th, all you need to do is submit your refundable deposit! This ensures that you have PRIORITY STATUS, so don't pass up this opportunity!

Step Three

Next Steps & Tips

You are eligible to receive a conditional acceptance via email upon submitting your deposit once registration opens on Monday, January 28th. In order to receive this, you must also complete your Birthright Israel application, Shorashim application, & your phone interview. Please note that your trip acceptance will be conditional until you receive a second email from us confirming that you are approved for travel.

To increase your chances of being placed on one of your top trip choices, it is important to complete these steps as soon as possible. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND completing the entire pre-registration process prior to Friday, January 25th to help with this.
