Israel Experience trips—and Taglit-Birthright Israel trips in particular— increasingly include a substantial mifgash—an “encounter” between the Diaspora Jewish visitors and Israeli peers. The aim of the present report is to improve understanding of the formal and informal components of the mifgash, as well as the significance of the experience for North American and Israeli participants. The report and accompanying survey frequencies are available in Hebrew and English.
