It's not often that I wish I were younger--life is just fine right now, thank you--but when I received an announcement from the Jewish Book Council about one particular opportunity, I wished I could be 18-26 again.
The Council is now working with Hillel to provide a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip focused on journalism and Jewish literature. This free trip is open to Jews who are 18-26 years old and have never been on a peer-group trip to Israel. Registration opens next week, and will be open until March 4.
If this trip appeals to you (or might appeal to someone you know who fits the eligibility criteria), click here for more information.
