This report examines the impact of Taglit-Birthright Israel on its alumni five to nine years after their visits to Israel. The data are derived from the second year of a longitudinal study of Jewish young adults. The present study is “Wave 2″ of long-term data collection from applicants and includes a new cohort as well as additional data from their initial respondents. As the researchers found in 2009, Taglit appears to be responsible for a 51% increase in the likelihood that a young Jew will marry Jewishly, as well as an increase in the attachment participants feel for Israel.

To assess American Jewish views about Israel, a survey was conducted in June 2010, beginning two weeks after the Gaza flotilla incident, of more than 1,200 individuals who were identified as Jewish in a large national panel. The survey explores American Jewish attachment to Israel, in particular in the younger generation. The findings of the present study challenge the view of a widening schism between American Jews and Israel. A majority of American Jews feels attached to Israel and the overall level of attachment has remained stable for nearly a quarter of a century.

This is the first national study designed to explore the near-term effects of day schools on the academic, social, and Jewish trajectories of former students during their college years. Conducted during the winter of 2006-07, this research drew over 3,300 Jewish respondents from college and university campuses in the top quartile of ranked schools in the United States. Employing both quantitative and qualitative methods, this study contextualizes the experiences of students from day schools through comparison with Jewish undergraduates from private and public school backgrounds.

Registration for this summer's Taglit-Birthright Israel trips has broken all previous records. More than 40,000 young adults from North America have applied to participate. Brandeis University researchers report that there is no consistent evidence in surveys conducted among national samples of American Jews that either younger individuals, or adults, have grown more distant from Israel.
