Mifgash: Encountering Jewish Identity in the 21st Century

Mifgash tells the story of Hillel Bus 740 on their ten-day Taglit-Birthright Israel trip, highlighting the challenging, enlightening, and ultimately life changing moments as these participants question, reflect, and grapple with their own Jewish identity. Participants share their hopes and concerns as they explore the Golan Heights, climb Masada, float in the Dead Sea, excavate ancient ruins, ride camels, and spend Shabbat in Jerusalem. Half way into the trip, Israeli soldiers join their Diaspora peers and they learn from each other about what it means to be Jewish today...and what this means for the future of the Jewish people.
