Birthright Israel has announced a new program: the Tel Aviv Urban Experience. The Tel Aviv Urban Experience is a first time 3 day event (June 7, 9 & 10, 2015) that aims to enable Taglit-Birthright Israel participants to experience contemporary Tel Aviv up-close and personal by exploring the fields of high-tech, fashion, culinary, art, dance, music, theater, photography and the energy that the city has to offer.
Three thousand participants will tour Rothschild, Sharona, Suzan Dalal, HaBima, Cinematheque and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and experience for themselves the central role Tel Aviv plays in shaping modern Israeli society and the impact it has had on the larger global community.
On June 7th & 9th participants will be taken to the Tel Aviv Port for a musical performance by the popular Israeli band Hadag Nahash.
On the concluding day of June 10th all will gather at the Wohl Amphitheater to celebrate Taglit-Birthright Israel’s 500,000th participant with Co-Founders, Mr. Charles Bronfman and Mr. Michael Steinhardt.
