JRC Israel vs. Birthright
|JRC Israel||Birthright Israel|
|Do I get to travel with a group?||Yes||Yes|
|How do we get to Israel?||Direct flight on El Al from NYC||Depends on the trip|
|Free nights?||At every possibility||A few hours in Tel Aviv/Jerusalem|
|Where do we stay?||We’ve found that staying in a new place each night is a schlep, so we make Jerusalem our home base for most of the trip||Different locations almost every night.|
|What will I learn?||Inspirational Jewish learning dealing with modern day issues. Tour through ancient historic Israel. Spend time with local Israelis. And more||Daily Israeli geo/political issues. Modern history. Experience with IDF soldiers. And more|
|What activities will we do?||Jeeping, kayaking, wine tasting, hiking, personal concerts, small group meetings with Israeli leaders, desert hike, bonfires, Save A Child’s Heart, and a lot more. Since we have 15 days we’re able to do more and at a slower pace||Depends on the trip, but you’ll do some the same activities as JRC Israel|
|How religious is the trip?||Has a daily dose of Jewish inspiration||Tends to be more secular, but depends on each trip|
