Who Is Onward Israel For?
Onward Israel is designed as a second peer experience in Israel and a Birthright follow-up program. It is intended for Jewish undergraduates and young professionals between the ages of 19-30 (age requirements may differ on certain Onward Israel programs), who have previously participated in a peer program in Israel. Ideal participants are:
- Birthright Israel alumni who have not yet returned to Israel on a peer program;
- Teen travel programs alumni (who are ineligible for Birthright because of their teen travel participation), unless they have:
- returned to Israel on a Masa program
- spent more than three months total in Israel after their teen program
