(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Some 3,000 young Jewish adults from seven countries gathered on Tuesday night at the International Convention Center in Jerusalem for the mega-event of the Taglit-Birthright Israel program.
Birthright brings young Jews from around the world to Israel on free 10-day trips. At Tuesday’s event, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Birthright participants to make Israel their home.
“My message to you is short: This is your country. Come back again and again. Welcome home,” Netanyahu said.
