St. Louis Jewish Student Clubs To Run Birthright Israel Trip with OU Israel Free Spirit

JSU and OU Israel Free Spirit have partnered to increase the number of Jewish young adults from the St. Louis area going on Birthright Israel trips.

Israel engagement is a core component of all JSU programming. Since it’s inception JSU provided numerous summer programs for high school students. It is excited to add a trip that continues the connection beyond high school. With this partnership, alumni of the JSU program and their friends will have the opportunity to either go back to Israel or travel there for the first time.

Israel Free Spirit is a leading Birthright Israel trip organizer in participant satisfaction according to the Szold Institute research for 2018. Trips are open for 18-32 year olds with at least 1 Jewish parent who didn’t spend more than 3 months in Israel or travel on a post-high school program to Israel. In addition to the standard Birthright Israel trips, the trip options also include specialized niche trips that allow participants to choose trips based on their interests or backgrounds.
