birthright passport

Your trip may be over, but the journey continues…

The JCC in Manhattan is proud to partner with Birthright Israel NEXT and the Birthright Israel Alumni Community in welcoming thousands of NYC Birthright Israel alumni "home" to the JCC. So much happens in this first intensive encounter with Israel—you meet new people, connect to a land, a history, a culture and a community.

  • You become curious and want to learn more…
  • You discover new music you'd love to hear live in concert…
  • You try foods you would love to learn to make yourself…
  • You are intrigued by a language you would like to become proficient in…
  • You feel more connected to a community and you'd like to deepen that connection…

Here at The JCC in Manhattan our doors are open wide for you to continue your journey. The Birthright Israel Passport is your ticket to choose from hundreds of FREE options for deepening your connections.

The Birthright Passport program is made possible through Jenna Segal, the program’s founder, and the generous support of the Paul and Jenna Segal Foundation and the Goldhirsh-Yellin Foundation, Inc.

If you have questions or just want to touch base, please contact Shoshana Rosen at and she can be your "tour guide to the JCC".

This passport offer is valid for Birthright Israel alumni who went on a Birthright Israel trip within the last 2 years and can be used on JCC programs and services (except all children's programs, fitness/pool/basketball membership, personal training, massage, private swim lessons or merchandise).
