“Birthright was a life changing experience that motivated me to learn more about my Jewish culture and I made some amazing friends along the way,” said KU sophomore, Nathan Boresow.
Registration for the trip begins Monday, Sept. 8 for applicants who have previously applied for the Taglit-Birthright Israel trip and on Tuesday, Sept. 9 for new applicants. On Sept. 10, KU Hillel will also be hosting a Birthright registration party from 6:00-7:30pm to help students with the registration process. The registration link will be available on KU Hillel's Website when registration opens Monday morning.
Over the new few weeks, KU Hillel interns and past Birthright participants will be hard at work ensuring that each eligible student has the chance to apply for this opportunity. Many of these interns are former Birthright participants.
“After going on Birthright, I was inspired to become an advocate for Israel,” said KU sophomore, Jake Novicoff. “Being in the country really opened my eyes to Judaism and all it has to offer. Ultimately, it made me realize that when everyone says you have to go to Israel, they are absolutely telling the truth. I am looking forward to helping other students learn more about Israel and signing them up for such an amazing trip.”
