Travel to Israel


The Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan sponsors annual Taglit-Birthright trips to Israel. Our trips provide the unique opportunity to experience this once-in-a-lifetime trip with people exclusively in the NYC community. Return home with a "bus load" of new friends who all live nearby and enjoy all that the JCC (and the rest of the city) has to offer! And upon returning to NYC, Birthright participants have access to our Birthright Israel Passport Program—a free $250 gift card to the JCC. For more information, contact Israel Outdoors, our official Taglit-Birthright Israel trip provider, at

The Birthright Passport program is made possible through Jenna Segal, the program’s founder, and the generous support of the Paula and Jenna Segal Foundation and the Goldhirsh-Yellin Foundation. 

Help us continue to ensure accessible programming for everyone. Please support Israel programming at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.
