Some 3,000 young Jews from around the world celebrated Tel Aviv's 100th birthday at the city's Hatzuk beach in a massive party as part of the Taglit (Birthright Israel) project recently, reports www.local.co.il. Information and Diaspora Minister Yuli Edelstein attended the event and told the participants to keep Israel in their minds even after they return to their campuses in their home countries. According to the report, Taglit head Gidi Mark said that in the 9.5 years that the project had been active, 210,000 young Jews from 53 countries had been brought to Israel, strongly strengthening their Jewish identity. After the official speeches, the party-goers were treated to "Zionist hip-hop" music featuring musicians who themselves had graduated from the Taglit program and had moved to Israel.
