Staffing a Birthright Israel experience with Shorashim is a great opportunity for educators to give back and help ensure that our participants have the highest quality experience. At Shorashim, we work with a number of partners and many of our staff positions are committed to employees and affiliates of these incredible organizations.
Beyond that, we are always looking for oustanding staff to contribute to the once-in-a-lifetime Israel experiences that we provide. Staffing is a privilege and very competitive, for which we are always looking for amazing people to make the experience successful.
To apply to staff a Birthright Israel: Shorashim adventure, you should meet the following criteria:
- At least 23 years old
- If under the age of 25, completed college
- Completed an Israel experience other than being a Birthright Israel participant
- Consider yourself an educator
- Involved in your Jewish community
- A leader, role model, and team player who is accustomed to working hard, being flexible, and going above and beyond to make any experience the best for those they are supervising
Beyond these requirements, staff are responsible for participating in mandatory training sessions. If Shorashim is hosting a training in your city, you are expected to attend the training. If there is not a training in your city, we will distribute & go over all information with you to ensure that you are prepared for this role.
Please note that recruiting and staffing have no correlation, although we are always happy to see our potential, former, current, and future staff participate in our ambassador program. Remember, the more people that we send to Israel, the more staff we need!
