(Important Note: If you have applied in the past for a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip, you can register early on Sept 13th at noon EST from


Now for ways to increase your Registration chances!

After tens of thousands of applicants and many hundreds of trips, we’ve learned a tip or two we are glad to share with you. Read the following information very carefully!

Early Bird Catches The Trip so register (Sept. 14th): Demand is expected to be very high. Even if the system has glitches you should be patient and apply on the first day. Register directly from www.IsraelFreeSpirit.com.

Security Deposit: You will need to pay a fully refundable $250 deposit during registration. Please make sure you have a credit card ready for making the payment. You can’t go this winter without it.

The Email Used to Register: Starting now, the official registration engine will reject all “.edu” email addresses, so you cannot use a university or college email to register for the trip. Please have another email active account ready to use for the trip registration.

Past applicants: you need to log in with the same registration email address you used in the past. If you do not remember the email address, or it is no longer active, click here now.

Past Applicants Who Used a “.edu” Email: If you used an “.edu” email when registering in the past, you should send an email to information@birthrightisrael.com with your full name, old “edu” address and your new non-“edu” email address so they have time to update the system before registration. This is critical if you want to be able to register as a returning applicant.

Passport Info: You DO NOT need any passport info to register. Just skip this step and register … you can always put the information in later, and you will need a valid passport to travel to Israel.

Add to White List. Mark the following emails as “Safe” so you get all critical registration info and confirmations. If not, important emails might end up in your spam box.
Email #1- @israelfreespirit.com
Email #2- @birthrightisrael.com

Finally, if you have questions, send us an email or call Scott at 1-212-613-8176. We love our trips and are more than happy to tell you all about them.

Best wishes…and get excited!
