Taglit, known as Birthright Israel, is a tourism organization that offers Jewish adults between the ages of 18 and 32 the opportunity to visit Israel. 

Birthright Israel was founded in 1999. 

The goal of the 10-day trip around the country is to offer the young adults an opportunity to connect with their Jewish roots and identity, placing Israel at the center. 

Thousands of trips, ranging by category across the spectrum of diaspora communities from 68 countries, have been carried out by the organization. 

During the coronavirus pandemic, the trips were halted for the summer 2020 season, but were able to return the following summer.
