Thirty two thousand young Jews are expected to participate in free ten day trips to Israel through Taglit-Birthright Israel this summer, organizers announced on Wednesday. The participants will come from forty two countries. Birthright participants are at a lower risk for intermarriage, some studies have found.

"The project aims to increase the number of participants who come to Israel each year," Taglit CEO Gidi Mark said in a statement. "I am proud to announce a new summer season record-breaking number of participants. It is exciting to bring hundreds of thousands of Jews from around the world, many who have never stepped foot in Israel till this experience."
