website. Please be sure to complete all 8 sections of the online application at one time.
Have your passport (if your passport is unavailable it can be entered later) and a credit
card handy before starting the application.
- Not following these steps will severely decrease your chances of getting on
the trip of your choice, or any trip.
- A) Be sure to complete all of the required information in the first 5 sections
immediately when applying (passport information can be entered later). Do not start
the application and leave it incomplete.
- B) Be sure to enter your e-signature on the waiver in section 6.
- C) Be sure to confirm your email address by clicking on the link in the email that you
will receive from Taglit-Birthright Israel after you complete section 7.
- D) Be sure to submit the fully-refundable deposit to Birthright in section 8 at the
same time that you submit your online application. Do not push it off for a later time.
Only applications with deposits will be considered for a trip. Remember, there is no
commitment by giving a deposit. If need be, you can cancel before the deadline and
receive your deposit back in full. Only the $10 handling fee is non-refundable.
- E) Add email@example.com to your address book or white list to ensure that
you receive all important emails from us about the trip including your acceptance
In addition to the email from Taglit-Birthright Israel, you will receive an email from
MAYANOT (it may take a few days to receive this email) which will contain a username
and password so that you can log-in to the MAYANOT website and complete the
application process. As soon as you receive this email follow the link to log-in (you can
always login again from the “Applicant login” link at the top of this website). You can then
submit all of the required forms. If you have completed your online application but did not
receive the log-in email within a week please click here to have the email resent to your
may close registration early as has been done in the past. As such, we strongly
recommend signing up and submitting a fully-refundable deposit and the required forms
immediately even if you are only considering joining a trip. There is no commitment – if
need be you can cancel before the deadline and receive your deposit back in full.
Passports and Travel Documents (visas) should be ordered or renewed immediately after
