JTA — Lapid Israel, a coalition of US-based high school programs in Israel, has shut down, citing Israel’s apathy in supporting long-term teen trips and philanthropists who preferred to support the free 10-day trips run by Birthright.
“The difference is not ‘high school or not high school,’ the difference is how deep your Jewish knowledge is regardless of visiting Israel, yes or no,” he said.
Lapid’s leaders aren’t the first in the Jewish world to complain about Birthright’s impact on other programs in Israel. Now over 48,000 participants come annually on the program, according to Birthright’s website — and over 600,000 since its founding, including Israelis.
“With the current set-up, the Jewish community is losing masses of teens who can engage with Israel earlier while still with family and community,” he wrote.
“Fewer Jewish teens are entering college with readiness and motivation to be engaged with Israel, and not enough is being done about it.” Gidi Mark, international CEO at Taglit-Birthright Israel, defended the program’s effectiveness in forging connections with Israel.
